I don't know how client certs get into the default location now, but
whatever way they do, that isn't affected by the proposed change. Joe
is merely saying that if the client does *not* find the cert there, that
(by default) we shouldn't prompt for some other path.

He also suggests that we improve the couldn't-find-it error to give some
more information about where to put certs, and (I assume) to mention the
new config option in case the user would like to be prompted.

Thanks. If you can tell me the issue number, I'll link it up to #2410
and #2597, so all the client cert issues know about each other.
