Sure, just create a HTTPS site and then redirect it to HTTP via htaccess in a Static/CGI/PHP app. Instructions for setting up a redirect are available here: Redirect a Domain with a Static/CGI/PHP App

Note that this does not eliminate the need to have a certificate for your domain. SSL negotiation always happens first, before the web server does anything else, so if you don't have your own certificate, your vistors will see WebFaction's certificate and will get a warning since the certificate isn't issued for your domain.
