Right now the output looks like:

go tool pprof https://host:port/debug/pprof/profile
Fetching profile from https://host:port/debug/pprof/profile
Please wait... (30s)
http fetch https://host:port/debug/pprof/profile: Get https://host:port/debug/pprof/profile: x509: certificate signed by unknown authority

It would be awesome to be able to pass a --insecure option (like when using curl) so that you don't need to add the self signed certificate to the system's trusted root certificate store to collect profiles.
