Yup - that's pretty much the situation (I found the same limitation
when I developed Klant).
I have a vague recollection of someone telling me a workaround that
didn't involve making TLS VFS aware - reading from a socket perhaps
or maybe it required one to first copy the certificate to a temp file.
I'm sure if there is a workaround someone will mention it on the list
