This is probably the best idea and maybe also makes it easier to include
other secure protocols like shttp as a module into Apache. BTW, has someone
taken a look at the shttp support in NCSA 1.6beta?

In my humble opinion the risk to get legal problems with any kind of
crypto hooks is extremely low...

Just my $0.02.
