My pref is the 1st option, since that seems the easist for us to
handle, and the most appropriate for us. Seperation is
unwieldy for a variety of reasons, and it seems to me that
following the already established processes of other "affected"
organizations is the safest. It also allows for some sort
of "collaboration" of this issue among us as well.

Of course, this is also applicable for other ASF projects that
use SSL, such as Tomcat with tcnative/JNI.
