Support for ssl with client certificates


Please keep me in the cc as I'm not subscribed to this list.

I've configured my w3m to authenticate itself with a client
certificate by setting the configuration options in ~/.w3m/config.

This worked at the shell but in emacs-w3m the process hangs in the
passphrase Dialog.

I found this can be remedied with the following quick fix (which might
not do the right thing[TM] but could be a start for adding proper
client certificate support to emacs-w3m):
