I agree.  I don't think we should be shipping certs, but if we do, then it
must be possible and easy for e.g. Linux distros to override.  Linux distros
are already managing certs through their normal and security updates, so it's
a burden to also have to do so for Python.  I think this analogous to shipping
other types of external databases, e.g. timezones, etc.
