OK, you're right.  I think in 99% of cases it will be redundant, but you're right I guess.

Problem is now have to understand how easy to serve a special cert for the .onion domain for HTTPS over hidden service (already serve cert on public IP address for the apache virtual domain).  Any howto's out there on HTTPS for .onion?
