nginx is definitely an important server. stunnel/stud too [1]. Anyone who knows 
nginx, please test and/or fork!

Basic WebID config options are:

- advertise an empty client CA list
- verify self-signed client certs
- put the SSL client cert in environ

(we can do everything else via fastcgi/haproxy)

The necessary bits for lighttpd2 [2] were added a couple months ago and now 
hosts data.fm. The Apache 2 module [3] has been available on Debian [4] for 
even longer.
