Well all I am asking for here is that one can specify a default client certificate on the command line.

Using curl one can do 

$ curl -E/--cert  <certificate[:password]> https://webid.net/web/

The idea would be to allow the same behaviour in cwm. That should just be a matter of passing the client cert and the private key that goes with it to the HTTPS or FTPS endpoint, to send along if requested by the server.

It is true that CWM also can be run as a server. For that you may want to ask 


Ian Jacobi may have more up to date info on what is going on in python.
But I think just being able to GET remote WebID protected resoures would be good.
