Thank you, Bernard.  In bringing myself up to speed on this, once I 
stumbled across the phrase "two-way SSL" I was able to find much good 
reading about it.

I just added Comment #11 to the bug report on this:

     The range of services requiring two-way SSL is increasing,
     and with IoT the scope of use cases is multiplying.

     Where required, I don't see an opportunity for a scripted
     workaround, so in those cases the only alternative is to
     leave LC for a tool that supports two-way SSL.

     This would seem a good time to bite the bullet on this
     implementation. What would be required to make it happen?
