    > Using the term "fail" in that context is not something made up by me or by the people
who created the ssl application with that very "fail_if_no_peer_cert" option, it's the technical
terminology that has been introduced in the respective RFCs, and which is actually used by
the people who are talking about that stuff.
    That's the key phrase! +1 for `fail_if_no_peer_cert`. I have no more questions about and
you made this name explained for others who will be turned on by the same questions like I
did. Thank you! (:
