I'm obviously missing something here...  Shouldn't the most simplisitic
config syntax for mod_ssl simply be:

<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
  <VirtualHost _default_:443>
    DocumentRoot htdocs 
    SSLEngine on
    SSLCertificateFile /path/to/my/certificate/file

I'm just not really seeing why we need this config to be separated out 
into another file.  We don't need to have an example that shows 
everything - just the most simplistic and common case.  Anything else 
should be RTFM.  -- justin
