Forgot to mention:  I've patched mod_gnutls for PSK usage.

I've also thought about patching mod_ssl to recognize PSKs but there are 
several points against it:

- not easy to compile mod_ssl standalone.  To be honest I have
   problems compiling apache itself (on Debian testing)
- mod_ssl code is much larger than mod_gnutls
- mod_ssl (openssl?) does not obey the maximum fragmentation
   length requested by the clients

Thanks, I will give it a try.
