I agree to a point.  SSL is a VERY complex feature, and we are talking
about adding it to the core of Apache.  I have always found that adding
the basic SSL directives with all their comments overwhelms the default
config file.  I would hope that when we get SSL into 2.0, we use an
include file to easily add the SSL directives.  Of course, things could
become simpler in 2.0 so that it isn't necessary.
