Seems fair.  There's no reason why any module configured for the Apache API
needs to carry the Apache Group 'Copyright'.  In fact this is one clear example
of a bit of software which shouldn't carry the Apache Group name, or be
distributed with the main source code.

In this vein you'd be advised to assure yourself that you're not personally
liable for letting people have this information.  I dun't know the legalities
of this stuff at all.  Paul Richards could give you a little insight, or you
could of course contact other authors of SSL code for other applications.
