No, it's not at the moment.

Hmm. We could add this without too much hassle. Unless you would want to 
ban certain classes of users from connecting without SSL - config for 
that would get messy quickly.

But are you actually finding that the SSL overhead is a big deal? I 
would expect (admittedly without measuring it) that whatever work mgmt 
does to respond to your query would overwhelm the effort involved in 
establishing an SSL connection.
