Hmmm, I'm not sure.  If the user has configured this it seems slightly 
patronising to then berate them for doing so.  Also, why log in the case 
that the directive is supported and enabled, but not the case where the 
directive is unsupported because OpenSSL is too old?  In either case 
reneg is (or may be) insecure.

I considered logging a warning for each client which renegotiates 
insecurely (whether due to lack of support on client or server), but, 
that's likely to be very noisy.

Regards, Joe
