Okay.  Is this documented anywhere?  I dug around for a while and couldn't
find anything in the Apache docs about key formats (other than encrypted vs
not), and very little about the key formats in the openssl docs.

What documentation are you looking for?

I was looking for openssl documentation that said what format its generated
files were in.  Didn't think to look in the changelog.

I was looking for apache documentation that said what format it would
accept keys in, but the only thing I found was that some of the directives
wouldn't accept encrypted keys.

I was looking for some documentation that actually defined the two
different formats, but couldn't find anything.

Perhaps my google skills are poor.  :)

No, I think the documentation of mod_ssl is just very vague. I guess to not confuse people too much with all that crypto stuff ;)
They only say PEM-encoded and I guess that works for most people.

The thing is that the actually support encrypted keys for the server cert, the server will prompt you for the passphrase on startup. I guess the authors of mod_proxy didn't want to go through that.
