Come on, isn't this a contradiction to your always redirect approach?
gopher is almost dead and doesn't provide any advantage over HTTP in
terms of MIM prevention.

I agree with hiro to let the user decide if he sticks to http or
https, but that we shouldn't mandate https.

This whole discussion is really a waste of time. Now, HTTPS is there
to satisfy some packagaer as an option to choose from. Kudos go to
Hiltjo for this. Whoever wants to stick with http, shall stick to it.

We don't want to break a running system.
