This is a good idea but 0.9.6 is too old and have a lot of "minor 
problems". 0.9.7 had a very long
"cull off" period and I believe that it actually 0.9.7b or 0.9.7c now. 
And I just checked 0.9.6
sources and I do see that it returns an error w/o checking "trusted" 
certs. I do not like your patch
because it accepts *any* self signed cert. Nothing is impossible and I 
can write some glue code
to make additional check on xmlsec level but it just does not make any 
sense to me. And I am going
to drop 0.9.6 support as I decleared many times :)
