WebClient with Certificate Support

By default the WebClient does not support using a certificate, for this you normally need to use a HttpWebRequest, but you can create your own subclass of the
WebClient that lets you supply a certificate when using a WebClient.

using System;
using System.Net;
using System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates;

namespace Jarloo
    public class CertificateWebClient : WebClient
        private readonly X509Certificate2 certificate;

        public CertificateWebClient(X509Certificate2 cert)
            certificate = cert;

        protected override WebRequest GetWebRequest(Uri address)
            HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)base.GetWebRequest(address);
            return request;
