  Yes, it's something that I plan to do at some point. But I don't want to
just install software on, even a simple bash client, that's at the
core of the security infrastructure, and not understand it; I want to be able
to tell exactly what's going on with, or at the very least put a good amount
of trust in, *everything* running on the server. That's why I'm not using
Python, among a lot of other things.
  So, I plan to understand exactly what an ACME client does before installing
one - maybe a bash client (which would require installing bash on, which I've been able to avoid so far), or maybe I'll write a
minimalistic C one. I'll probably get around to it somewhere in the course
of 2017.
