Since we depend here on mod_ssl and mod_rewrite and not every user/sysadmin
wants to have it activated by default without knowing anything about this. 
Do you know if there are web apps which doesn't work properly with
mod_rewrite on? I don't know. 
I discussed that with white (white@debian.org) about one month ago and after
the discussion he shared my opinion that it would be better to default to
false and to ask here. 
So we really think over this :) (the discussion took ~2 hours)
