Hey, that was quick, thanks :)

I'm glad this didn't end up being another flame war between
people who want plaintext caching and people who don't ;)

How can I help you test this? Didn't you mention some day in IRC
that you figured out how to create a client certificate with
a passphrase? Does the server have to know about the client
somehow? Would I have to set up a server? Or could I test against
some server you are testing against as well?

One minor nit:

The indentation here looks wrong.

Thanks for working on this feature,
