Yes, sorry about not following up on that. I was registered as such
for a few weeks, but I have not been able to follow up. It did not
seem fair for this patch to wait on only me, which is why I have
removed my name, at least temporarily, so as somebody may be able to
come back to it before me. I am not completely sure whether I will be
able to come back and dive deeply into this thread soon, TBH :/

(There were a few things around certificate handling that need careful
consideration, at least that was my impression.)
