As others have pointed out, we are proceeding on the beta w/w-o mod_ssl.
Other issues may interfere with this becoming a beta, but this lists' long
debate yeilding the decision to proceed.  BUT, your objection should be noted
in the beta announcement (something like, "Note; mod_ssl is not part of this
beta cycle, and is not even asmuch as alpha quality yet.  Please be patient
for ssl/tls support in Apache 2.0.")

As another noted, mod_tls works.  However, mod_tls is a model of how mod_ssl
should insert itself as a filter in the Apache 2.0 model.  The 'cool features'
are actually part of mod_ssl and will remain there.  mod_tls is very light on
useful functionallity, and it won't be growing new Directives.
