Just to say "yes please".

I think it would be good for Zope to be able to say "secure out of the box".

Whilst recognising that Apache + Zope will continue to be the preferred
route for many, I think it's an extra bit of complexity that the newcomer
to Zope can do without.

FWIW links to the only recipes for standalone Zope + SSL known to me
can be found via <http://www.zope.org/Members/glpb/dwhowto>. As I recall
I never quite figured how make the WebDAV port secure using that
advice so it would be great if you could straighten things out for me.
