Given that signtool is used to sign and verify software objects, customers
should be able to trust that they have a version of signtool that they can
trust - otherwise object signing doesn't make sense. 

I would like to propose that iPlanet/, digitally sign the binary
and source distributions of signtool and make them available on your web

Additionally, allow customers to be able to buy an official CD-ROM from 
iPlanet/ with signed versions of the signtool binary and source.
This way customes won't have to trust the websites, if they prefer to trust
official CD-ROMs from the company.

Set Target Milestone to NSS 3.3.  Assigned the RFE to
Bob for evaluation.

Signing out distribution in general would be a good idea, just not for 3.4.

Changed the QA contact to Bishakha.
