You hit the nail on the head with that last sentence.  We aren't demanding
a specific directory schema [heck, they can create a conf/ssl.d directory
and auto-multi-configure a whole slew of seperate ssl configs per host.]
The user can do what they like, when they configure up Apache.

The point is we are -choosing- to Include files, not forcing any specific
.conf file list at them [srm.conf/access.conf].  That was bogus, this is
much cleaner.
