Mmm, Apache-SSL?  So it *is* an Apache Group project?  I'm not sure that
we should set a precedent in allowing non-Apache group projects to bear the
Apache name directly.  FreeSSL-HTTP using Apache might be a better designation.
It's just a suggestion, but I think it's important, cuz one day we'll end up
seeing MicrosoftApache v1.0 and then we won't have anyone to complain to suz
we've already let non-Apache Group initiatives [yeah I know it's a grey area ;)]
take our name.

Just cuz we can't make it a trademark, dun't mean we can't honour it as one.

Whatcha think?
