When implementing nsICertificateDialogs::NotifyCACertExists in an embedder, I'd
like to be able to tell the user _which_ CA cert they have already installed.
The method as it stands now is almost useless (and may be exploitable in a
phishing type attack).
it's also flash frozen, bug 168450 :). you'll have to GI nsIUsefulProperties.
We may want to replace NotifyCACertExists() with something more generic, along
the lines of "Show alert or confirm regarding cert" (see bug 298045).
Please see bug 310446 comment 4.

I've produced a new patch that combines the various requests to give user
feedback with certificate details.
