Configure Apache to make it run without SSL renegotiation

After the issues due to Apache renegotiation made public on November 2009, it is advised to configure Apache this way:

On the SSL virtualhost root
SSLVerifyDepth 4
SSLVerifyClient none (ou require)
SSLProtocol all -SSLv2 -SSLv3 
SSLHonorCipherOrder on  # apache 2.1+
Then inside your virtualhost, or in the .htaccess of your DocumentRoot, do not ever use the 4 instructions up here.

It makes Apache negotiate the right values from the root and not to renegotiate them after.

Downside: you can not configure a site without certificate authentication on the root with one repertory requiring a certificate anymore. You will have to create a special site that requires the user certificate from the root.
