Not really. Life's been a bit busy with a job transition currently
happening and a sudden strong desire to jump out of planes [0]. Recent
free time went to pushing out a mkinitcpio release. I'll probably have a
chance to poke around this weekend as I have some downtime on Saturday.

I'm inclined to move in the direction of what Fedora does [1], which is
to pull directly from mozilla NSS. That would at least take care of the
bundle that we rely on for curl and wget. I'm left wondering where they
get their loose certificates from, though, as they aren't included in
their ca-certificates package [2].
