> The new Erlang SSL implementation (which we use to consume _changes) has a default verification
depth of 1.  This causes pull replication from an SSL-wrapped server to fail if the server
has an intermediate certificate in its chain.  Intermediate certificates are pretty common
especially at the cheaper end, e.g. GoDaddy certs.  OpenSSL uses a default depth of 9; I think
we should do the same.
