I don't want to check the subject because this RFE was prompted by IPA's

ask NSS if it will trust the cert?
Yes. NSS provides a variety of tools to test validation.
Thanks! I'll take a look at it again.
Going just on memory here, our current version of python-nss has a
simple call to test validation. Sometime in the last year I added a fair
amount of new support for certificate validation including getting back
diagnostic information for validation failures, however if I recall
correctly the extended functionality in python-nss has not been released
I'll add verify_hostname from the validation example; if there's
anything else please give me a pointer -- I haven't read all the docs, yet.
