 The default for the NRPE sources is still to have SSL disabled.  I  
 know it all sounds nice to enable SSL by default but an SSL'd nrpe2  
 has no way of accepting non-SSL'd connections, i.e., no backwards  
 compatibility.  So, a users large installation *may* start to fall  
 apart if the head end isn't SSL capable, and even if it did, would  
 need command duplication to add the -n option for those hosts.
 
 Personally, I think changing the default would break POLA, so I can't  
 approve the patch.
 
 Jarrod.
