In my code, I added three boolean configuration options
which all default to false:

     AllowUnsafeInitialConnect
     AllowRenegotiation
     AllowUnsafeRenegotiation

Hopefully this will make it obvious to people that choosing
the Unsafe options are just that (though the first one will
be needed for a while yet).
