On linux or mac, for development, and if you don't want to redirect through
nginx or apache, you can make a self signed cert:


And make a subclass of ZnZincServerAdaptor with #defaultZnServer overridden
like so:

   ^(ZnSecureServer on: self port)
	certificate: '/home/sven/ssl/key-cert.pem';

And then start it with:

	| adaptor server |
	adaptor := ZnZincServerAdaptor startOn: 8080.
	server := adaptor default server.
		debugMode: true.

And report back if it fails as I haven't tested the above but it should
work. YMMV etc etc etc
