It could just be a wrapper for ttoul, and that could replace the manual checks
in plutomain, etc.. Although I did notice:

                case 'x':       /* --crlcheckinterval <time>*/
                        ugh = ttoul(optarg, 0, 10, &u);
                        if (ugh != NULL)
                        crl_check_interval = u;

This is one that is not range checked. What would be a good ceiling for crl fetch intervals?
