aye, we've got an issue for that (iirc), essentially the current ways 
are just issue another cert w/ the same webid in it, or export .p12 and 
import (where the browser doesn't delegate to the os for cert storage), 
there's also the issue of temporary certificates to cover for internet 
cafes / libraries etc. There are many other ways to approach these 
issues as well, but many other approaches depend on decoupling webid 
from x509s.

best,
