Patch to add support for SSL passphrase via config file
Lighttpd supports SSL passphrase input via stdin. In some cases, it is more convenient to be able to specify a passphrase via a config entry. The attached patch adds a new option ssl.passphrase that allow to do just that.

This is an updated version of the patch against 1.4.28 release
Apply with: patch -p0 -i lighttpd-ssl-passphrase-config-1.4.28.diff
Any change to see this included in 1.4.29?

Why not remove the pass? You most certainly start lighty as root, so chown the cert accordingly and just remove the pass?
I don´t see any benefit (in case of security) to use the pass at all - if you set perms right - or it might be even worse if you also store it at lighty´s config file.
