I agree.

As another data point, I've seen a couple people confused by the startssl
thing.  They do:

OK, let's start the server:
apachectl start
Now we have the server running, lets add ssl:
apachectl startssl

The options are confusing because they imply you are starting two
different things, whereas in fact, you are starting the same thing with
two different sets of options.
