Hi, sure, I want to make things as easy as possible for users. but
A) afaik there is not even a default location for system certificates among linux distributions, not to speak of different opeating systems.
B) should we try to match each existing ca cert file we the cert we received? How many are that, and what woujld be the perf implications?

Is there a standard to check ca cert file locations?
