Yeah, this would be nice. The current --openssl is kind of a hack so if
you have something better, great!

Could you file a bug and attach an svn diff against the trunk?

There might be something like this. Could you give a specific code
example what you want to do?

This is bug https://bugzilla.osafoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5380

There is an OpenSSL API for getting this, but so far I haven't been able
to wrap that successfully yet; there are parts of the API that I don't
understand completely.
