Patch by petere on 2012-01-14 01:50:34 PM: Initial version.
Review by miracee on 2012-01-17 09:11:41 AM: Patch is ok besides one small thing in docs:

In runtime.sgml:
...
must disallow any access to world or group; achieve this by the command
chmod 0600 server.key
...

I fear modern Linux users won't understand chmod 0600.

I would write something like this:
...
achieve this by either the command
chmod 0600 server.key or the command chmod u=rw server.key
