Add support for Gemini client certificates #205

I know anything TLS-related is typically a PITA, but having Gemini client certificate support would be a stellar feature.

If there's interest in putting this together I am happy to help in testing/QA.

Client Certs were a feature in an older version of Bombadillo and were deliberately removed. For the time being I do not see that changing, but if geminispace really ramps up the need for client cert support I may look into it. At present it is really just a very small handful (less than 5 that I know of) capsules that utilize them and I really see Bombadillo as more of a reader than an interactive client. I'll keep it in mind for future versions though. Definitely let me know of the sites you are interested in being able to access and I'll keep track of them as a part of the decisionmaking process. I definitely appreciate the willingness to help test!

I opened this issue after a discussion about how to do session tracking in Gemini. Use of client certificates was the proposed solution, so I naturally checked to see if my Gemini browser supported them.

I had no immediate use case - I was trying to be future-looking. :-)

No worries on shelving the request for now.
