A number of apps I have encountered that use SSL hide the original error 
from you, replacing it with something vague and misleading, and you're 
off on a wild goose chase.

If possible, it would be cool if the SSL code could return the original 
underlying SSL error code and/or messages in a structure, in a similar 
way to how the apr_ldap stuff does. You get an APR_EGENERAL/etc code 
back, with additional detailed info in a result structure that the app 
can either display to the client, log somewhere, whatever.
