A noop if not explicitly enabled, you could probably leave it 'most'.

But present with 'reallyall'?  That works.

But stuck on 'reallyall' I hope?

Isn't 'all' enough?  Pretty special-purpose, even tomcat is easier
to manage from an http connector.

There is a long debate about this, and in 2011 it likely doesn't matter
so much, but this was disabled explicitly due to the varied and ever
changing government policies on munitions.  It probably doesn't hurt to
leave it at 'reallyall' when ssl is detected.  The other argument is to
install it for most and all, on the premise that if crypto is forbidden,
openssl is not present in a usable form.

All, sure, if APU_HAS_ICONV, but most?  Pretty limited application.

All... noop if not configured.

No; leave it reallyall, it actually does work, and is probably as applicable
as proxy_scgi.
