[wp-hackers] SSL for a single page

Theres no settings for per-page SSL, I have a feeling that if you were to  
attach to a permalink-related hook, and change it to SSL, then WordPress's  
canonical redirection would kick in and redirect the user though.

WordPress doesnt care for shared SSL vs Dedicated SSL, It doesnt do any  
SSL work itself, thats left to the web server, It mearly outputs https://  
links instead of plain http://
