Looking in to this a little further (thanks google) has confirmed what
I thought; that reverse proxying ssl is largely pointless. This rather
old message explains the scenario:

That leaves you either, a) forgetting about ssl authentication between
the user agent and zope, b) exposing zope to the client directly, or
c) using something at the tcp level to forward the encrypted
connection to zope's port.
