A point of clarification - I'm haven't considered the client side at all
in any of this, I've only been working to get a broker up with ssl. I've
actually been connecting to it from linux. In fact if I read the code
correctly the client side doesn't open the certificate store at all (at
least explicitly).

I didn't really emphasise this, but I think that using LocalMachine
store is probably more insecure than necessary in that it allows anyone
with access to the machine access to the certificate to impersonate the
broker. So I'd like to change the default, however that wouldn't be
backward compatible - would that be an issue do you think?
