Agreed. Someone that is really wanting to manage lots of certs and their own CA isn't going to want to do that with a little script. When I'm updating the documentation for SIP TLS stuff, I'll try to point people to TinyCA and other tools. Keychain Access on the Mac allows you to create CAs and manage certs, etc. as well.
