The only thing that's holding me back in updating the Qt certificates is to 
decide whether keeping expired certificates is a good thing.

There are 81 certificates in Qt's bundle. One of them is repeated, so 80 are 

However, from those 80, 8 have expired already.

Of the 72 non-expired, unique certificates in Qt, 48 are *not* in the Firefox 
certificate store. But when the remainder of the Firefox ones are added, the 
total increases to 120.
