Will that just report a warning? Or will this make it impossible to sync
against a server with an expired certificate? Expired certificates don't
automatically compromise security and you might be unable to convince the
company running the server to make them install a new certificate. I would
prefer if there would be a configuration option or command line argument
that would allow us to sync against a server with an expired certificate.
