	Here's the problem: if ConnectorGBean offers SSL settings, you're
offered the opportunity to provide/configure a bunch of stuff that is
totally irrelevant to a non-SSL connector (you know, user views an HTTP
connector, it asks them for a keystore -- what's up with that?).  I don't
believe we should offer configuration and management setting that don't

	So, I'd prefer to do this:

 - all connector code
 - non-SSL config options

SSLConnectorGBean extends ConnectorGBean
 - no additional connector code (config/mgmt only)
 - always sets secure=true
 - includes SSL config options (inherits non-SSL config options)
 - ultimately can refer to an external keystore GBean

	That wat if you go to manage a HTTP connector, it has only 
settings pertinent to an HTTP connector, and if you go to manage an HTTPS 
connector is has all the settings pertinent to an HTTPS connector.

	Again, I'm not at all suggesting that we split up the code that 
deals with the underlying Tomcat objects.

	Sorry -- I thought I wrote to the list about this aready, but it 
was stuck in my postponed messages.  Here was my original thought on the 



        So as part of this management API, I'd like to move a bunch of
properties out of the "initParams" and into separate properties for the
Tomcat connectors.  Then those properties can be reflected in the
management interface.

        One issue is that all connectors seem to support the same settings
-- in particular, the SSL settings, which I guess are just ignored unless
the secure flag is set.  But it doesn't make sense to me to offer SSL
management properties for HTTP connectors.

        That being the case, I'd like to break out an SSLConnectorGBean
from the ConnectorGBean.  The SSL version would just extend the basic
one, add more manageable properties, and default the secure flag to true.

        For now, you could still configure a SSL connector using the
standard ConectorGBean just to frustrate me, but eventually I'd like to
move all the connector properties into GBean properties and remove the
initParams all together.
