SSL for the forums

The webservice login mechanism requires HTTP authentication headers with

credentials (HTTP Basic Authentication, RFC 2617). These headers are

encoded using a reversible algorithm which means that anybody along the

way can sniff my authentication headers and read my username and

password from them.

Could SSL be enabled for the forums so we can safely transfer credentials?
