    Nah. Do it right:

    Internet ----- Firewall ---- SSL Accelerator Box --+---- Webserver
    HTTPS HTTPS | HTTP
    |
    IDS
    Check out the boxes from SonicWall, they're quite nice. Expensive,
    though. If your E-Commerce site can't afford them, well, then they
    shouldn't be able to affore a security consulant in the first
    place. :-)
