Another thing: sslcacertfile requires a full certificate chain; the
proposed sslfingerprint requires only verifying the tail of the chain
(ie, the vendor's certificate, ignoring the CA's certificate).

Which may be more useful --- for the same reason that being able to
specify only the tail of the chain, rather than the full chain, in the
sslcacertfile might presumably be useful.
