Note we would need to update the kickstart file for pyOpenSSL
and opssibly other pacakges for the guests. I don't really see
a good reason to generate those on a guest instead of a host.

We could add a check to see if the timestamp on the testing/x509
directory is newer that the certificate generated, and only then
regenerate all certs - all before starting the tests.

Because it is never ever used for anything anymore once the VMs are
created? Each VM has their own base +qcow file. Note this is what
slows virtual machines down over time. It's good to regenerate the
VMs every 2-3 months.
