I think wrowe and I were of the mind that we shouldn't have any
dummy certificates or any automated process to create a certificate.
This is a case where I believe it is best to not even try than do
something that'll blow up in our faces later (It Worked anyone?).

I think we said that it is okay to point at a HOWTO (now do we write 
this HOWTO?).  That's not really our responsibility.  If you can't 
figure out how to create a certificate from the documentation, we 
don't want you running a SSL server that implicates the evil 
Snake-Oil company.  =)

Sounds like the docs need to be updated.  -- justin
