Hello Gertjan,

Thanks very much for your patches. I already commited all the SSL ones
and the configure one.

For the following patches, I'm testing them against Amaya first. I'm having
some problems with a timeout during a long PUT and I'm not sure if it's
related or not. I hope to be able to commit them tomorrow.

In all cases, it was a very good work. Thanks!
