If your app involves SSL and certificates, it's never going to work
right anyway.  Even if it does, nobody will ever use it correctly.
Even if they do, whoever created the certificates will have screwed
them up.  Even if they didn't, they'll forget to renew/replace them
before they expire.  Even if your app and certificates are OK, the app
on the other end of the network connection won't work right.

I'm only half joking...
