Actually, mod_ssl duplicates the logic of mod_tls currently.  You don't
need mod_tls to use mod_ssl.  Either mod_ssl needs to get the logic
stripped out and it needs to be hooked in to mod_tls (and the fixes from
mod_ssl need to get shifted over to mod_tls), or mod_tls needs to go away.
I prefer the latter...
