Using pipelining over SSL will break any server configuration requiring
a per-location SSL renegotiation (for a client cert, etc), which is not
something you want broken by default. (you can perhaps argue about
whether this is a problem inherent in the TLS protocol or "merely" in
the current implementations thereof)
