I am currently trying to make it work... But ATM as soon as I require
a client cert, I get a deadlock (both the SSL client and server try to
read during the handshake). Hang out a little longer, please...

I haven't traced it: why is match_headers too early? In theory, the
SSL negotiation has been done with before the request and headers can
be read. Of course, it would be too late for switching on
SSLVerifyClient in a per-dir-context unless it has already been on
globally. But that has nothing to do with mod_setenvif, only with the
way SSL requests work.
