cyrus distinguishes between asking for a cert and requiring a cert. I don't
know why, sorry. Sometimes it is practical to ask for a cert and only try to
verify it without enforcing it. But asking for certs while incapable to verify
them (without CAs) seems odd. That's why I decided to do it that way.
