As we had discussed in person, I'll add the eval block and necessary
error handling in v2.

Also, I just had an idea: What do you think about collecting error
messages in an array (where applicable) before letting the sub die?
For example:

> my ($cert_path, $key_path) = @_;
> 
> my @errs;

>     if !$cert_path;
> push(@errs, 'No certificate key path given!')

Would maybe make it a little more "ergonomic" when debugging, but I'm
not entirely sure if that's actually necessary.
