apache-ssl is just apache with an ssl patch applied, AIUI, so other mods
should work fine.  You can run both apache and apache-ssl on the same
machine, and they should both pick up all available loadable modules.
I've played with SSL in the past, and I've always just used the
'libapache-mod-ssl' module (/package) which plugs into 'normal' apache
and gives it superhuman SSL abilities.
