I have nothing against Jan's patch this time.
I added passing arbitrary parameters on the connector element, so it 
should be actually possible to avoid using the fake socket factory. I 
don't have much time to tweak stuff, but the server.xml should IMO be 
updated, removing the factory for the SSL example. Can you do it ?

(and then the SSL Howto and connector docs will need to be updated)
