Maybe adding an option to ignore parts of the asn spec instead of commenting
things out in the asn file could be used. Leaving the asn file untouched is
nice from a maintainance point of view, commenting out unnecessary/unwanted
stuff is nice from an implementation point of view.

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
