Some browsers like Chrome/Chromium but also cmdline clients using openssl like
wget support ssl compression. This is a big problem for ssl enabled servers
when they offer big files. Pulling for example a (already compressed) 100MB
file via such a browser using https the ssl compression eats up CPU time
significantly. The overall performance of the server will also go down.
Multiple clients make it even worse. It should be possible to disable ssl
compression in mod_ssl to solve this issue.

Please consider to add the patch from
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=53219 to the Debian package.
It adds the parameter SSLCompression On/Off which allows to disable the ssl
compression.  Maybe it is possible to get this even in Squeeze as it doesn't
change any default setting?
