The TODO list has moved to STATUS so that's good.

Based on feedback, I'll create a top-level LAYOUT describing the directory
trees within the httpd-2.0 layout, and fill in the SSL items from the old 
This allows any developers to grasp any part of the server [including mod_ssl]
without jumping between different files and different conventions for each of
the server's components.

Perhaps we could resurrect the porting history [although I believe it's 
incomplete] as modules/ssl/HISTORY?  OTOH, those parts that are correct
aught to have been committed to CHANGES if they were not in the first place.

What I -don't- want is to continue special-casing modules where each has
their own conventions for additional developer documentation and files.
This will continue to be an issue when modules like proxy jump from their
own sub-projects for development into the httpd-2.0/modules repository
for general inclusion in the server.
