Point taken. Not an issue for my typical use case; may come up in
future, so good to remember.

No real "vs" or "thing" IME. nginx(ssl terminator) -> varnish -> nginx
works quite nicely.

There's also Varnish's terminator, Hitch, as an alternative,

https://www.varnish-software.com/plus/ssl-tls-support/

got nginx in place on the backend -- adding a listener on the frontend
is trivial.
