Hey Matt,

thanks for spending the effort to piece together the information that
are spilled between man page, changelog and source code. It's really
impossible to setup v3 client auth for a non-hacker right now, so your
blog post and tickets are appreciated.

Let's hope we will find some time and energy to improve this area soon.
