I kind of agree with that.

While OpenSSL-1.0.2 is still unreleased, it seems that all options for
existing releases are a bit hacky, to say at least... The trusted
certificate store sounds like the only way to do it right now, but it
effectively makes SSL client verification useless and creates a
security issue.

What do you think, Maxim?
