Hi Jason,

Can you walk us through the trade-offs between the following two schemes?

a) Adding the patch to MediaWiki and having Wikipedia track which certs
are good and which are bad.

b) Running an http proxy of your own somewhere that demands
authentication via certs, and then allows proxying to Wikipedia?

Option b seems to need some way for Wikipedia to tell you "who" caused
abuse so you can remember that yourself, but on the other hand maybe
it's easier for Wikipedia to handle?
