You'd need to code to a number of libraries/APIs (CAPI, NSS) in order to
access browser cert stores. When I wrote the SSL sleeve we use for CVS,
I initially took the approach of exporting certs from browsers, then
importing them as PKCS12 files.

It isn't a matter of just reading certs out of a file and using them,
though of course it would be nice to do so.
