Yes we can (tm!), providing we convert PEM to DER internally. I was not
thinking about using backend-specific function to handle the file
format: You already started by reading it using fopen()/fread()/fclose()
and I think coding our own PEM-->DER conversion is not a huge job (we
already have base64 support). In addition, not all backends provide APIs
to read ASN.1 objects.
For now, point 4 has already been applied.

See my reply to Daniel's e-mail. I'm open to all opinions/suggestions.

Thanks for this feature.
