they take:
(FILE *, <X509 ** or EVP_PKEY ** in the cases we call them for>, password
callback, userdata).

None of them take a CTX.

I would imagine this is becuse they are in libcrypto, and not libssl.
They don't want to require an SSL ctx just to read certificates.

However, maybe instead, neon should use the SSL_CTX_* functions that read
certificates into the SSL context, and probably use the default password
callback since they take a context.

I only just noticed them, I'm not an openssl person.
All *I* wanted to do was implement client authentication in subversion. :)
