Following this up to note a couple of things...

Still not sure what this is about, but...

>>4. I found that configuring SSL in jetty-base/modules/ssl.mod has no effect. Instead I must create a file jetty-base/start.d/idp.ini with the four lines:

Brent correctly identified that out instructions about copying module files are wrong and that we do need to use the property files, so we'll get the docs cleaned up. There shouldn't be any copying of .mod files.

I'll have to fix the 9.2 examples also.

The other relevant detail is that v9.3.1, which several people had been trying to use, was broken. The problem getting it to handle form POST data was in fact a regression and I tracked down what they broke. It's possible to make it work, but they just shipped 9.3.2 that corrects the regression and works again anyway, so the minimum version that's usable is 9.3.2, which I'll document.
