It's attached. It was against the trunk a week or so ago, but
probably still applies ;)

Incidentally, does anyone have any thoughts about the best ways to
display this sort of extra status information? stderr is fine in a
pinch, but in general I don't run my surf sessions from a terminal
so most of the time it'd be non-trivial to fetch the output.

Oh, and note I'm not sure whether it'll print the ssl failure output
if you have sslstrict on - I haven't tested but it may well abort
the connection before surf gets a hold of it.
