That's the problem.  I think introducing OpenSSL is going to be a big
nightmare for httpd (and I'll bet we get tons of -1s on the httpd side
for this).  Whatever httpd needs should probably be in apr-util 
(sha and md5) - everything else can use OpenSSL.

I'd like to hear feedback from others.  I already stated my position
earlier this week.  -- justin
