I haven't delved into this deeply yet, but I suspect that, while I am
fond of client certs, they won't work - SSL network and CPU overhead
and sidestepping PKI madness for server certs. More on this when I get
to implement it.

Now, anyone who wants to have a strong say on how I am developing this
is free to start implementing it ahead of me, and showing me some
fantastic patches :-)
