Enably http2 by default

It'd be nice if http2 was enabled by default, especially if ssl is specified.

The http2 parameter (1.9.5) configures the port to accept HTTP/2 connections. Normally, for this to work the ssl parameter should be specified as well, but nginx can also be configured to accept HTTP/2 connections without SSL.

While HTTP/2 has advantages over HTTP/1.1 in a number of cases, it also has many disadvantages. There are quite a few use cases, where you should prefer HTTP/1.1 (despite a lot of marketing bullshit about HTTP/2).

Moreover, proper configuration of HTTP/2 isn't only about enabling it. TLS layer must be also carefully configured or your website will be unavailable.

So, no.
