so is there any real benefit to cacert versus just signing my own
certificate?  It looks like the popoup is going to come either way.  If i
sign my own cert and set the common name to my domain, i imagine the certs
aren't going to look that different from the user perspective nor will the
user experience be that much different?

it looks like $69 for basic cert.
