First of all, mod_ssl isn't an external module.  It is in the base
distribution of apache 2.0.  Secondly, mod_ssl _is_ production quality.

And apache 1.3 isn't being closed down.  It is merely switched to
maintenance mode.  This roughly means that only security releases will
be made.  New features/improvements simply won't make it to 1.3.

And more time spent on apache 2.0 instead of 1.3 will help that ;)
