We're having pain today due to the Lib/test/selfsigned_pythontestdotnet.pem certificate update sychronization.

This wouldn't be painful if our tests relying on a specific certificate matching something elsewhere on the network supported multiple possible certificates.  Specifically an old and a new cert.  When doing that, we could go ahead and commit the new cert, moving the existing one to old, before flipping the update on the test infrastructure.  in all branches.

that'd prevent massive PR CI and buildbot failure fallout.
