Then it's a great time to contribute :-)

XSP and mod_mono share a lot of code. Most of the required code is
already present in the shared class:

If the mod_mono specific code calls the
MonoWorkerRequest.SetClientCertificate (like it's being done in XSP)
then the System.Web.HttpClientCertificate will start working (as
expected). There are also a few other variables outside the certificate
that may be useful (again you can check XSP source code).

It's simple, but it needs testing.
