I think that saying "SSL" might be confusing these days, since even the last version
called SSLv3 now is widely rejected by webservers. Saying TLS might be clearer.

And indeed, implementation example seems like a must to me. While ASIO documentation
include an example of SSL server, it's 2 pages of boilerplate, and hopefully it's not
necessary to repeat all of that if I use a library specialized for HTTP servers.
