Weechat currently supports client SSL certificates without passphrases --
using the irc.server.*.ssl_cert option. However if this option is used to
specify a certificate that is protected/encrypted with a passphrase, weechat
fails to prompt for the passphrase and fails to load the certificate,
generating an ASN error instead.

Please add support for passphrase-protected SSL certificates. 

Ideally, include an option for the passphrase to be cached in memory (to
automatically reconnect, so long as weechat is still running), or used and
immediately forgotten (forcing user intervention to retype the passphrase if a
reconnect is needed).
