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.
