Hi!

Hoops! Only peercert/2 should have been removed, my bad. I will put it
back.  I think that you usually  would access the peer-cert in the
verify_fun during the handshake and
not when the connection is already up,  hence I overlooked that it
still might be useful and backwards compatible to keep ssl:peercert/1
.
