I honestly don't know much about this use of SSL! How would it work
from a Web browser? I've never needed a client certificate before.
twill is based on mechanize, so it supports https URLs; I can check
through the mechanize code once I have a better idea of what you need,
and if it's just a matter of writing a few interface functions then
it'd be easy.
I expect it would be relatively easy to add commands to retrieve, parse,
and check the server certificate.
