No there isn't. 
It's rather easy to fix TSslContext to include CRLs 
(Certificate Revocation Lists) in the certificate 
verification process. 
That's just adding a new property "SslVerifyFlags" and
a call to f_X509_STORE_set_flags().
However that makes only sense if the revocation lists are
up to date. The download location is stored in the certificate
and can be either a HTTP link or something else, and the
format of the CRL may not be in PEM format. Another option
was OCSP, if I remember well.
