Is it possible to use the node-oracledb in a Middle Tier for Proxy Authentication with Enterprise Users (or if not are there plans to enhance it so it can be)?  Reading the security guide here https://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/network.102/b14266/apdvprxy.htm#i1007059

it discusses Using Proxy Authentication with Oracle Users where the user is identified by doing a OCI_ATTR_SET with an attrtype of OCI_ATTR_DISTINGUISHED_NAME and the distinguished name of the user which I assume you can extract from the X.509 certificate.  (Alternatively the X.509 certificate itself, but it says that is to be desupported.)   Looking through the C++ code for the driver and I can't find OCI_ATTR_DISTINGUISHED_NAME ever being used so I'm guessing this isn't supported yet.  Is that correct?
