At the time the default SSL configuration was put in haproxy.cfg, the
Mozilla generator already existed. Hynek's one was preferred mainly
because the configuration was smaller. The minimal configuration from
CloudFlare was also in the balance.

I think this is a good idea.
Take care to branch the right way on equality.
