I have modified mod_gnutls to use pre shared keys.  Modifications were 
quite simple.  When everything is tested, I will make the small patch 
available and Paul will hopefully merge it into mod_gnutls.

The other advantage of mod_gnutls over mod_ssl is, that maximum 
fragmentation length (embedded system!) in gnutls is really working as 
it is supposed to do.  I had no success to make it working under openssl.
