That is right. I am not sure, how many can be convinced in the near
future. Asking is cheap, though, so would that work for you Fons? :)

That of course is also true and thanks for pointing it out.
When writing, I was more thinking of subdomains hosting applications,
that require authentication (then seeing, that e.g.
{lists,wiki}.linuxaudio.org already facilitate letsencrypt certs).

Of course, given the right tools and infrastructure, it gets
increasingly harder to achieve some form of privacy.
However, that's no reason not to aim for the maximum amount thereof.

In any case (unless your ssl is broken) and however one wants to turn
it: It is beneficial to implement https and I'm happy to hear it will be
