I have checked this, as I've compiled and used modssl.

We can make it more modular if we apply the patches it provides
to our apache and ssleay packages, but I didn't look closely
enough at the apache patches to see if they had any legal issues.

It's got a cleaner interface and is coded better, but is still not
buildable as a shared object as mod_perl is.
