That is not the real problem. The real problem is the old standards issue.
Peutronics <whatever they are called now> keep changing their data formats.
It is not only a CA or one client who has to switch. It is all clients of a
CA firm and other collaborating CA firms who have to switch. Else one will
require a continuos ongoing seamless means of data export to / from GNU
Khata to Tally.

There is also the never ending issue of keeping up with the utterly daft
ROC, ST, Excise, VAT departments' idiotic implementations of security
certificates for esigning. Most of the above services do not function
behind a proxy / firwall and require disabling to ZERO all security to get
them working. Add to the mix M$ document formats, forms embedded in PDF,
etc etc and one faces a herculean task in switching a CA's office to a
GNU/Linux environment.
