It is also not easy to get a certificate from CACert for anything else than an individual, but it can be done.

Anyway, I am a CACert assurer (who doesn't have many points yet, but still...) and I know a few others so if you happen to need a certificate you can I can try to help.

I also agree with Aaron: a self-signed certificate is good enough if the application is to be used by a few identified people only. If they want to check the authenticity of the certificate they just need to ask somebody else to send them the original...
