consuming sparql, working with naming authority), I think I will move on in
terms of coding. The platform is stuck on 2000 era SSL, and is resisting
innovation with SSL. I need source (and GNUTLS is not mature enough for my


If anyone is interested in classical webid work, one might look further at
g.htm. Its an STS, with openid bridge, that does client certs for https too,
