No. That is not my understanding at all.

The way that I heard things: mod_tls is how we do the SSL connection at the
basic level. It deals with Apache's I/O filtering. mod_ssl builds *ON TOP*
of mod_tls.

Further: I understood that building on mod_tls was a necessary precondition.
Not that mod_ssl was to replace mod_tls.

Ben got all the kinks worked out of how to do the basic SSL/TLS stuff within
the filter system. Modules such as mod_ssl (and possibly others) are to
build on that.
