Please take an look at the actual package.  This is exactly how it work
now. (In sid, the issue here is it has not propogated to woody.)  The
former webmin-ssl package is now a dummy package which installs webmin
which contains SSL support.  This way people upgrading from webmin or
webmin-ssl both get the SSL support.

Anyway none of this does a damn bit of good unless aj allows changes to
woody.  (or at least flatly disallows them.  Then I can at least upload
0.970 to sid and ask for the removal of webmin from woody.)  But aj hasn't
responded so i'm stuck.  Every day, I don't do anything is another day
somone potentially gets rooted.  That doesn't make Debian look good.
