Oeps... seems as though /dev/brain wasn't updated yet,
and I didn't get a bounce either. Let's retry that.

Subject: SSL/TLS certificate issuer

Hello all,

this diff logs SSL/TLS (HTTPS connection) X.509 certificate issuer
information into the "recent statusline messages" (accessible via
the backspace key) and replaces my artist name in the comment with
the acronym from the AUTHORS file:

Please use it.

A little quirk: if I press backspace, cursor-up (to move to the
[1][Your recent statusline messages] link), cursor-right, then
the information looks weird sometimes: (113x35 uxterm)

     Your recent statusline messages
   10. Data transfer complete
    9. 'A'lways allowing from domain ''.
    8. HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    7. HTTP request sent; waiting for response.
    6. Sending HTTP request.
    5. Secure 256-bit TLSv1/SSLv3 (DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA) HTTP connection
    4. Issued         by        /O=Root        
CA/OU=        Cert        Signing
    3. Verified connection to (cert=*
    2. Making HTTPS connection to
    1. Looking up

I think this is due to the source:

<META http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8">
<title>Your recent statusline messages</title>
<li value=10> <em>Data transfer complete</em>
<li value=9> <em>'A'lways allowing from domain ''.</em>
<li value=8> <em>HTTP/1.1 200 OK</em>
<li value=7> <em>HTTP request sent; waiting for response.</em>
<li value=6> <em>Sending HTTP request.</em>
<li value=5> <em>Secure 256-bit TLSv1/SSLv3 (DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA) HTTP 
<li value=4> <em>Issued by /O=Root CA/OU= Cert 
Signing Authority/emailAddress=support@</em>
<li value=3> <em>Verified connection to (cert=*</em>
<li value=2> <em>Making HTTPS connection to</em>
<li value=1> <em>Looking up</em>

Could that display quirk be fixed by using <pre> or something else
while constructing the internal page?

Also, I'd like to have the link to the "recent status messages" in
the Visited Links Page (accessible via a capital V), if not vetoed.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
