[racket] Webserver, SSL, and intermediate certificates

I guess GoDaddy, Thawte, DigiCert and StartSSL (and probably others) are not
signing SSL certs with their root key, but rather they have an intermediate cert
that they sign, and then use that intermediate cert to sign the SSL certs they


I think there should be a way to combine the "normal" site SSL cert and the
intermediate cert into a single file, and let OpenSSL handle it from there, but
I haven't had any luck:

StartSSL (startssl.com) issues free certs, which could be used for testing.
