This gets my vote.  I don't see why it's necessary for the ASF to be in 
the business of distributing binaries; letting other people assume the 
technical and legal responsibilites for doing that seems reasonable.

The documentation work necessary would be greater if mod_ssl is split 
into a separate package, and having mod_ssl in the tree is one of the 
compelling features of 2.x anyway.
