Sorry Bob, somehow I either never got or accidentally deleted your
reply :(.

The access is not for me; I do indeed use SSH.  As Leo points out the
access is for anonymous read-only access that is secure and proof
against MitM attacks.

I'm not asking for _authenticated_ HTTPS support, just anonymous access
over HTTPS.  More straightforwardly, I'm looking for HTTPS as an
alternative to our current HTTP support, not an alternative to our
current SSH support.
