SSL support has been in the JRE for a long time.
That's not the point of discussion here.
The issue is that Apache DS (or really mina) 
is designed around the new 'nio' I/O architecture.
Aparently there is no good SSL support for
nio before Java 5.

So basically it boils down to this: SSL could be
supported with JRE 1.4, but to do so would mean
significant work and (I would guess) lower performance.

Did I get that right ?
