Well, we have apparently different ideas of what a user name is. To
me, the "real name of the person" is a much better user name than
any "username". For example, having the real name of the person show
up in 'svn log' is much better than having its userid being logged.

So I set

SSLUserName SSL_CLIENT_S_DN_CN

in httpd.conf, and get all users logged with their real names. Why
would I want to log account names instead?

There is an environment variable copying the entire certificate, if
you want that. Copying specific extension fields is not supported.
