-TODO ISSUES REMAINING IN MOD_SSL:
-
-    * In order to use a DSO version of mod_ssl we have to link with
-      -lssl and -lcrypto. A workaround is in place right now where the
-      entire EXTRA_LIBS macro is being appended to the objects list, but
-      this is a hack. We should either revamp the APACHE_CHECK_SSL_TOOLKIT
-      autoconf function or come up with some other autoconf checks to
-      search for libssl and libcrypto and properly add them to mod_ssl's
-      link flags.
-
-    * SSL renegotiations in combination with POST request
-
-    * Port or dispose all code inside #if 0...#endif blocks that remain
-      from the porting effort.
-
-    * Do we need SSL_set_read_ahead()?
-
-    * the ssl_expr api is NOT THREAD SAFE.  race conditions exist:
-       -in ssl_expr_comp() if SSLRequire is used in .htaccess
-        (ssl_expr_info is global)
-       -is ssl_expr_eval() if there is an error
-        (ssl_expr_error is global)
-
-    * SSLRequire directive (parsing of) leaks memory
-
-    * Diffie-Hellman-Parameters for temporary keys are hardcoded in
-      ssl_engine_dh.c, while the comment in ssl_engine_kernel.c says:
-      "it is suggested that keys be changed daily or every 500
-      transactions, and more often if possible."
-
-    * ssl_var_lookup could be rewritten to be MUCH faster
-
-    * CRL callback should be pluggable
-
-    * session cache store should be pluggable
-
-    * init functions should return status code rather than ssl_die()
-
-    * ssl_engine_pphrase.c needs to be reworked so it is generic enough
-      to also decrypt proxy keys
-
-    * the shmcb code should just align its memory segment rather than
-      jumping through all the "safe" memcpy and memset hoops
+    * SIGSEGV on Linux (glibc 2.1.2) isn't caught properly by a
+      sigwaiting thread. We need to work around this, perhaps unless
+      there is hope soon for a fixed glibc.

-    * MaxRequestsPerChild measures connections, not requests.
-        Until someone has a better way, we'll probably just rename it
-        "MaxConnectionsPerChild".

-    * Regex containers don't work in an intutive way
-        Status: No one has come up with an efficient way to fix this
-        behavior. Dean has suggested getting rid of regex containers
-        completely.
-        OtherBill suggests: We at least seem to agree on eliminating
-                            the <Container ~ foo> forms, and using only
-                            <ContainerMatch foo> semantics.
-
-    * SIGSEGV on Linux (glibc 2.1.2) isn't caught properly by a
-      sigwaiting thread. We need to work around this, perhaps unless
-      there is hope soon for a fixed glibc.
-
-    * orig_ct in the byterange/multipart handling may not be
-      needed. Apache 1.3 just never stashed "multipart" into
-      r->content_type. We should probably follow suit since the
-      byterange stuff doesn't want the rest of the code to see the
-      multipart content-type; the other code should still think it is
-      dealing with the <orig_ct> stuff.
-        Status: Greg volunteers to investigate (esp. since he was most 
-                likely the one to break it :-)
