Nice to see someone noticing it.

This is not so different. I proposed as well the same syntax as AcceptMutex. But I retained
more backwards compatibility having the choices none/no, default/yes, sem and file.

Anyway you are right the file: choice is awkward and inconsistent with other options. How
about using my path, BTW I have a new one for 2.0.39 if anyone is interested, but issuing
a deprectation warning for the file: choice?

> 2) add SSLMutexFile which is processed like the LockFile directive

Good idea.
