Change the status of a certificate.

The status of a certificate can be changed only if the certificate currently has a status of "good", "revoked", or "hold" and can only be changed to another one of those 3 statuses. It is not possible to change the status for certificates that are marked as "expired" or "obsolete".

If the current status already is the desired status, the request is ignored and reported as having completed successfully.
