I don't want to distribute such a large archive with all dependency
sources included. Right now the current archives are signed, so any
internal makefiles, lua scripts, etc. are "safe", no? Also, the sigs for
dependencies are also in the archive so when the makefile fetches them,
verifying them should be satisfactory. Perhaps I don't understand what it
is you are asking for though.

When it comes out of beta and supports my server setup out of the box, I
will certainly consider using it! Or if Letsencrypt pushes reputable CA
authorities to start issuing free domain certs, I could go down that road
too. startssl was recommended to me, but I don't really trust them.
