I think that all you really need here is a "--ignore-verify-failures"
type option; a "turn off security" option for SSL.

This should just be a local change to the cmdline UI which registers a
server-cert auth provider and returns the equivalent of the "accept
temporarily" option which the UI would present if driven interactively
when an untrusted SSL cert is received.
