SSL/TLS support in Pyro4

.........Welle I was thinking perhaps you had trouble with self signed certs for 
some reason. I only used CA type setup because some recipe for mongo clusters 
seems to want that. I think the mariadb clusters were fine with simple self 
signed certs. However, if I control the cluster can I not just distribute the 
cert to all members and have them validate it against itself or does python 
refuse to do that? I vaguely remember some python apis allow the authority chain 
to be specified.
