Dear all,

Have you guys seen HAProxy's "Proxy Protocol"? The gist of it is a
patch for Stunnel 4.33 and smaller change to HAProxy. Used together
these permit flexible SSL handling with HAProxy.

(paragraph below heading "Quick News" - "Nov 11th, 2010")

I'm no expert, but this seems to be a very low-friction way of adding
good SSL support, and should be applicable to Varnish as well? SSL
support is on the post-2.1 roadmap; is the above helpful in
prioritizing this feature?  :-)


Best Regards,

Jesper Mortensen
