true. i can not and i do not want to.
and an important part of the confusion raised by the error message ids 
"why it allegedly tried to verify the certificate i already claimed as 
trustworthy as myself?"

this error seems to be caused by the chain verification procedure,
but *i didn't ask to run this procedure*

so the pragmatic aspect of my question is "how to suppress this unwanted 
behavior", but i prefer to understand the implementation and the error 
messages, in order to prevent similar errors in the future.

that's exactly what i did with openssl last night.
now openssl (being called from the command line) "trusts" all my certs
but the erlang's error _persists_.
