The patch is not mainline yet, and I don't know if it ever will. I'm a
little skeptic that users really understand the security implications.

A more secure approach would be to use the certificate ID as peer
identity, regardless of the IDi we get. This would bind the policy
lookup strictly to the certificate, while working around the issue we
see with Windows 8.
