I saw your patches. Many thanks, this is much clearer now.

The semantics of this sound like a good default to me, since it would
enforce a good cert as soon as I start caring, i. e. when I actually
have a root.crt to verify against. This is the kind of "single-action
SSL enabling" workflow I was already looking for when configuring the
snakeoil SSL cert by default.
Perhaps it shouldn't be called "try", though, maybe "cert" should have
above semantics, and "force" should have the currently implemented one
(i. e. fail if not present)?
But that gets us dangerously close to bikeshedding now...
