If your server already has SSL configured, then that's really all you need

This statement doesn't make sense. The function "tunnel.connect()" runs
locally within the browser. Any error which it receives from the server
will be passed to tunnel.onerror, not thrown. If the server encounters an
error, that error is passed along in the HTTP (or WebSocket) response,
received by the client (browser), and ultimately translated into a
Guacamole.Status object and passed to tunnel.onerror.

catching error with "tunnel.onerror" throws an object with pretty much no
