Yes, that we have to do. Something like
	if wget --version | grep -q '\+ssl' ; then
		add argument
translated into perlish.
Or parse the output of --version ourself.

> So ... what to do?

* add a check to wget for ssl
* if ssl is enabled, add --no-check-certificate
* if ssl is not enabled, stop when asked to use a mirror and give
  a warning to the users
* if ssl is not enabled, stop when wget is selected as downloader
  and a https server is used
What did I forgot?
