Which is why we don't enable SSL by default and instead point
them at the docs for mod_ssl.

However, I believe this runs contrary to how httpd-2.0 will be 
packaged by third-parties - I think Henri mentioned that he is 
enabling mod_ssl by default in his RPM builds.  I'm not sure
if he is including a "Snake Oil" certificate or not.  -- justin
