Not asking for client certs fixes the qmail and "Plesk" (also really
qmail) systems. The residual clients just lose when presented with
STARTTLS with or without client certificate requests.

So for now, I will need to selectively hide "STARTTLS" in the EHLO
response for some clients. If a client can't cope with client certs,
I am happy to forgo TLS with this client entirely, but if there is a
client or HELO control on ask_ccert, I could use that.
