I agree with that, "X-Forwarded-Proto or whatever" was meant to say "a
trustable information", and I even agree that's mod_remoteip's job to
give that information.

I just don't think we should make as if httpd were running https (i.e.
for all modules/applications to think it is), but rather give the real
information: trustable remote is running https.
