That is true, but: the API exists, so Claws might as well start consuming it.
Should the user choose to build against GnuTLS, Claws will not be able to
verify the chain, which is no worse than what we already have. Should the user
choose to build against OpenSSL, the situation will improve as the chain will
be verified. Finally, as soon as libetpan implements chain fetching for GnuTLS,
Claws will already be ready and GnuTLS users won't even need to recompile Claws
to reap the benefit, never mind wait for source-level fixes.
