OP here, lurking.
The need to load server certificates from memory is quite real. Some seven
years ago I wrote custom code to handle that for CCPs python branch, and
contributed patches to that effect.
It's always dismaying to see how peoples efforts get bogged down by one
thing or another.  So, now there is a pep that prohibits this change?  Fun
times.
