SSL and Varnish

  If you've used SSL with varnish in production, can you share any 
wisdom on your configuration and approaches?

We've been happily using Varnish in production for just over a year, and 
now want to use it for an SSL site so that we can use ESI, load 
balancing and other such facilities offered by Varnish.  I've searched 
over the Varnish website, and can't see any examples of a recommended 
SSL configuration. 
provides some documentation, but I suspect there are other options.

I'll happily consolidate the answers into a coherent document for the 
website so that others can benefit in future.
