Thanks for everybody who is working on this -- much appreciated!

I think it is a reasonable solution to submit to the certificate maffia until we
have solid solutions of our own in place.

I also think denial of service is an acceptable measure in case it is not
possible to authenticate certificates reliably.

And indeed, we need to find an interim plan because even if letsencrypt.org is
the way forward, it will not be ready within a reasonable time frame.
