After scouring the net I've found several isolated discussions regarding stunnel hostname validation. 
And also some patches that seem to implement hostname validation: 


I have a requirement to have stunnel (4.56) validate client certificates and their identity by comparing the its CNAME against the source address. 

I recall reading one response (which I can't find at the moment) from Marzena Trojnara indicating that this feature won't be supported. 
If so, can you explain the rational? 

Are there sanctioned patches out there today?
