Bug: KDE4 SSL Certificate support incomplete

This is one of a number of reasons many of us on the kde lists contend 
that, despite the public claims, kde sc 4 is /not/ ready for normal, 
ordinary use, by normal, ordinary users.  What sort of self-respecting 
SSL support fails to have decent management thereof?  It follows that kde 
sc is not feature complete, which means it's not yet release candidate, 
and may not even be beta, depending on how strict you wish to make your 
definition.  Expected and routinely used ssl features remain missing, 
which is pretty bad for a product that people will be using for their 
online banking, online purchases, etc.

Of course, normal ordinary people aren't really kde's target any more, 
after the recently announced name change, etc, devs are.  In that light, 
the claims make more sense, as kde sc 4.3.4 /could/ be reasonably claimed 
to be ready for ordinary /development/ use.

I've been predicting that 4.4 will finally make it to release candidate 
status.  We'll see in February, I guess.  The bug above isn't closed yet, 
but there has been some action on it, and the dev apparently behind the 
ssl support infra seems to think it's all there, it only needs a UI and 
he's not a UI guy, according to the bug, so hopefully one of the UI folks 
picks up the issue and runs with it.  (But I don't know... it's gotta be 
getting pretty close to feature freeze for 4.4, not much time left.)

Please register an account with kde's bug tracker if necessary, and vote 
for that bug. =:^/
