IIRC the HttpClientCertificate class itself is pretty much complete.
However it works if supplied with the basic information from the web
server. This was done for XSP a while back and most of it *can* be
shared with mod_mono.

If the variables are exported (i.e. available to mod_mono) then it
should be really simple to "feed them" to HttpClientCertificate. You may
already have 99% if the solution in your hands (and I'd be happy to help
you complete it).

There's rarely an official plan for such specific features (it's more on
a need-by-need basis) so it mostly comes from features/bug request or
from contributors patches (both comes with the big advantages of having
someone interested enough to test it in a real environment :-).
