Virtual packages. The same way that apache and boa provides httpd,
there is nothing saying that one can't have 'httpsd' as well, which is
provided by apache-ssl, libapache-mod-ssl, boa-ssl (except that
boa-ssl doesn't exist ;). (For this particular case, which IMHO would
be solved in a cleaner way with virtual packages than with if-based

IMHO it should only conflict, it shouldn't depend on apache-ssl, for
instance. If this is a mail or DNS server, I might want to install
task-harden without installing a web server.
