Hi Jim,

yes, it come up regularly - I have the feeling that it may be hooked into
libwww like this:

HTTransport_add("secure_tcp", HT_TP_SINGLE, HTSSLReader_new, HTSSLWriter_new);
HTProtocol_add("shttp", "secure_tcp", SSL_PORT, NO, HTLoadHTTP, NULL);

But I don't know SSLeay

	http://psych.psy.uq.oz.au/~ftp/Crypto/

and how easily it would fit with the stream model, though.

It's on the todo list [1] (but I can't so it as I can't distribute it).
