Sorry to send another mail. But I just want to ask if my mail is
inappropriate or if the list itself is dead?

> Specifically, I want to ask:
> 1. Is verify level 3 same as 2, but asks for client certificates as well?
> (Seems unlikely but still..)
> 2. Since verify level 2 also demands CApath/CAfile to be present, then it
> also is ultimately verifying against locally installed certs, which is
> supposed to be level 3's behaviour?
