While we're on the subject of SSL authentication, there should also be an option to provide a client certificate as part of the connection. This can be used on irc.oftc.net to automatically authenticate with their NickServ without needing to '/msg Nickserv identify passwd'

http://www.oftc.net/oftc/NickServ/CertFP

And I think it may be what the gnutls manual is talking about in this example:

When connection to an IRC server with SSL, Weechat should be able to validate the server certificate against given CA certficates and/or a fingerprint.

Encrypting is useless if you don't know who decrypts your message at the other end...
