The SSL library currently lacks the ability to accept a client certificate without attempting to verify it. To alleviate this issue, I was thinking that an attribute could be added to the ssl.SSLContext class along the lines of `verify_callback` (similar to how the SNI callback is handled) which would allow the implementation of custom cert verification. I'd be willing to help work on this, if I knew where to even begin.
