Sorry for the delay. Your guess is spot on - there aren't currently
any plans from the TpQt4 upstream side to implement high-level API for
either the auth channels or TLS certificate verification channels,
both of which would be welcome contributions.

I'd expect the interfaces to be reasonably simple to implement
high-level APIs for, as they don't involve building contacts or other
asynchronously built sub-objects for any of the events.
