Cool! Before I review the actual code, I have a few questions:
1 - Is there a document somewhere that describes this auth method in detail?
All I've found so far is very verbose descriptions without specific syntax
2 - "Amazon" in the name sounds very Amazon-specific. Is there anything else
besides Amazon that uses this?
3 - Can you please provide at least some test cases as well that make sure
that the basic AWS functionality is there? I figure some of the existing
tests for other auth methods should work as good examples/input on how to
4 - I didn't see anything in the code that made sure that OpenSSL is enabled,
so I'm quite sure it'll fail if you build without it. Right?
