Adding defaults is a good idea.  In fact I thought there were defaults
already, but looking at the patch I see none.  Right now, SSL is
enabled iff all three file locations are specified.  Instead, we should
probably add a fourth option to enable SSL, separately from whether
non-default file locations are specified.  Could you please add that as
a review comment on the patch so that I'll remember it as the patch

Adding SSL-related commands to the CLI is far more painful.  That's not
to say it shouldn't be done; the only reason I'm reluctant to do it is
that it's connected to a whole lot of other management integration that
needs to happen (e.g. to make the entire management subsystem
understand the concept of a tenant) and I don't want to do it *twice*.
Would it be sufficient just to add the enable option using default
locations, but not the file-location options?
