That bit is true, however...

That "someone" did exist, and was kind enough to point out that the SSL application guards the use of a client supplied `verify_fun' via `is_function(Fun)', which will fail for the tuple variety of the form. We can probably wrap a tuple fun/spec in a proper fun quite easily, and therefore make this work properly. We have filed a bug to look into doing just that, and will hopefully get the fix into the next release.

Sorry for any confusion and thank you for your analysis, which drew our attention to this!
