I can't say that I've planned that, no.

Well, I would have no problems with adding such a feature to libcurl, if
someone would help me making it come true.

I am not aware of any functions in the OpenSSL libraries though, that would
let us output a printed version of the ID, and one that would convert a given
printed version back to an internal ID struct version again...
