From: Daniel Dickinson <openwrt at daniel.thecshore.com>

This package is primarily for the packages and other feeds as
base already builds both encrypted/ssl versions and non-encrypted/ssl
versions of packages where there is the options and/or already uses
encryption where it is an option.

In the feeds there are number of packages which provide configuration
options to enable building with encryption but which do not provide
both encrypted/ssl flavours and unenecrypted/non-ssl flavours.

This configuration option is intended to allow for modifying those
packages so that one can enable ssl/encryption for all of those
packages at once, just by selecting this configuation option (i.e.
selection this option turn on the ssl/encryption configuration
options for those packages by default).

Long-term ideal is to move all packages to flavours, but that will
take more time and effort and this interim solution will make life
easier in the meantime.
