Yes we need to do our own cert verification but I understand the situation
and your reluctance to
further add library specific code. At the moment this is the most convenient
way for us to solve this.
But if the demand for this specific functionality is not very high, and only
me asking for it at the moment,
don't add it and I'll maintain my own libcurl version for now.

Thanks anyway!
