We should now be able to use either:
now that Mozilla Firefox 3, and derivatives, *will* be required to use 
SSL to server the file from (non SSL won;t be possible, just read the 
newsgroup and bug report) so mozdev.org needs to act and setup a plan 
a.s.a.p., not a last minute one I hope, because we like to have time 
left for testing.

You won't need a wild card certificate this way, and you could make it 
opt-in only, for project owners who need it.
