Don't know exactly what will be the problem if using such a

I mean, if I have more than one certificate from a matching CA in my
keystore or my smartcard, it needs to popup to select the right
certificate, how sould I select the right certificate otherwise?
And how I understand it, if only one matching certificate is on the
card or in the keystore, it selects automatically the right one.

And if the Apache on the server doesn't request a client certificate,
there will be no popup for a certificate, am I right?

Do I miss something, because I don't know what will be the wrong or
maybe a better behaviour than in this presentated solution?
