I guess SSL-only is fine then.

By the way, an SSL cert signed by some CA would be great.
Right now the cert is self-signed. Maybe a fresh cert could
be slipped in as a bonus while we're at it?
Otherwise, going SSL-only would mean that people would have to click
quite a lot of buttons to view our repo, at least in Firefox-3.
