The *setup* isn't necessarily complicated, but the resulting system is
definitely more complex. Gotta have some certs, gotta have some pubkeys from
each client, blah blah. Maybe it is easy, maybe not, but if it isn't needed,
then it is "too much" :-)

And recall: we're talking about Apache 2.0 and its mod_ssl here. Not the
most stable hunks of code. I'd rather not fight with it when we don't have
to.

Initial is exactly that. Before it became the official repos, we were
running quite a few tests on there. Haven't since. Those URLs might have
even got blown away during a refresh that we did.
