The rationale is that if we don't know what the failure reason _is_, we
don't know whether it's safe to ignore it permanently.  In other words,
it only offers "permanently" if the failure bits are all whitelisted.

The downside is that there's no easy way for a user to say "I know what
I'm doing, and I _do_ want to ignore this permanently; make it so", such
as a utility that takes a PEM form certificate (on, say, stdin) and
marks it as permanently trusted.
