Would you be willing to share the patch, even if it dosnt get included
in the release? It surely would be helpful :-)

Yep, unfortunately this makes for  really ugly usernames, as Apache sets
the username to the full DN of the cert, we would ideally like to just
use the CN, or map it to another name entirely (like the email address). 

If its not really been done, Ill probably implement something using the
Cookie based external auth that is already out there.
