Jeff, thanks for the reminder of that man page. I've just tried '-z
ALL', which similarly makes Firefox happy, but unfortunately, the score
that I then get at drops to B. :-( In this respect, the
explicit listing that Aaron referred me to is more successful, because
the score in this case is A-.

I've now begun to suspect that httpd doesn't (yet?) support a cipher
suite with Forward Secrecy (this is the obstacle to a score of A), but
it would be great if someone could confirm this suspicion.
