Thanks for the feedback and the crosspost. I think it would be great to offer peeps
that already link serf into their server to avoid an additional dependency.

Regarding Apache infrastructure use:

Would you prefer that the server gracefully restarts itself (when needed, at a time
interval configured?) or is this something where you prefer outside control anyway and
maybe a callable script that notifies/mails an admin?

I'll certainly throw in on some reviews, if/when I see the commits.

hesitant to use LE in our deployments because the httpd and puppet config/scripts are quite
rough. It doesn't "Just Work". This would go a long ways towards solving numerous certificate-related
issues for us.
