That's right sorry.

So what I would need is:

- setInteractive() to be honored for certificates
- in case on non interactiveness, instead of ERR_USER_CANCELED, some error 
that make clear what the problem is, like the certificate is not valid or it 
needs authentication
- a way to know if the job is waiting for user input

What do the core guys think?
