why not move this discussion to dev@apr.a.o?

There -is- an openssl wrapper now in apr (1.3-future release) that could
fit the bill.

This said, it won't be possible to accomplish the myriad features that
mod_ssl exposes through a straightforward tls wrapper.  We had one, mod_tls,
that was dirt-simple-stupid and just-worked.  It was also orphaned, people
want more out of their crypto layer.
