Good point - We thought SSL would provide a measure of protection
against remote commit password compromise. Also we figured it may help
somewhat against wiki-spam.

The cert is basically correct as mediatools is a CNAME for
frostie.cs.ucl.ac.uk. However you're right we should create an
appropriate cert for the this hostname so as save confusion. Also I
have to admit I added the alias at the last minute - I thought it
clearer as the nature of the site. We will fix it in May.
