[Openvpn-devel] verify-cn script

I was taking a look at the scripts that come with with OpenVPN tarball
and wondered why 'verify-cn' is written in Perl. Specially when the rest
of the scripts are written in shell/bash. Any particular reason?
I mean, running it in shell should be, if not a bit faster, more light
on things OpenVPN depends on (i.e. not requiring Perl).

I haven't tested this one (see attach) thoroughly but it seems to do
the job.
