Ok, done (r1203962). There's no need to have -SSLv2 in SSLCipherSuite,
because "!MD5" will already blow away all those ciphers (SSLv2 only uses

What makes sense, OTOH, is adding "SSLProtocol all -SSLv2" to the 2.2.x
config - this makes sure that SSLv2 isn't used even if an admin later
changes the cipher list and "accidentally" reintroduces SSLv2 ciphers.
