As to the performance aspect, if you're planning on running complex PHP
scripts - especially as CGIs - *especially* a system that says this in
its requirements:

PHP4 must be installed on the webserver with access to a SQL database.

(by which it means mysql, postgres, oracle, informix or ms-sql)
then I very much doubt that the http server is going to become a
performance bottleneck.

As to security: since many SSL implementations have their roots in a
small number of libraries, you may find that a vulnerability with one is
a vulnerability with several platforms.

(This isn't the case with stuff out of the DJB stable, however, 'cause
he has a long history of not trusting anything written by others, and
reimplementing it all himself from scratch.)

Good luck!
