A.8 UI Server: Managing certificates.

First, the input files need to be specified by one or more FILE commands. Afterwards, the actual operation is requested:

Command: IMPORT_FILES --nohup

Request that the certificates contained in the files specified by FILE are imported into the local certificate databases.

For directories, the server may offer multiple options to the user (for example ignore or process recursively).

The option --nohup is mandatory. It is currently unspecified what should happen if --nohup is not present. Because --nohup is present, the server always returns OK promptly, and completes the operation asynchronously.

FIXME: It may be nice to support an EXPORT command as well, which is enabled by the context menu of the background of a directory.
