[Defender] SSL/HTTPS Setup and/or Standalone Plugin

I realize that it's been asked before... but why doesn't WPMU have their own SSL/HTTPS plugin system? There's a TON of them out there, but I can't seem to find 1 with the *power & simplicity* that WPMU plugins have.

I have a strong distaste for installing extra and unnecessary plugins, especially when such features seem to properly fit within Defender.

- edit .htaccess file for SSL
- search/replace database for http:// -> https://
- force https pages, with option to disable on pages as needed

just my .02
