Any thoughts on migrating to Let's Encrypt[0] when it comes online late
this year? Obviously we'll want to see how it goes in the wild before
leaping to it, but might this be the last year we spend money on SSL

I'm also curious if anyone on list has any in-principle objection to
Let's Encrypt, or if it really is the SSL panacea I'm hoping it is.
