Amaya uses it. I don't know about other applications, but they do exist.
However, we're not using SSL.

Normally, you won't need to change the code. Did you register the SSL
handler as shown in the wwwsssl.c  example (Examples/ directory) ?

What does the server traces report?

I was able to use it to retrieve documents from SSL servers, without
problems.

If you're showing me code modifications, please send them as diffs, so
that we can understand better what was changed. 

If SSL is not working in your application, then, like Olga said, the
code needs more development. It's there as a first step, but doesn't
mean it does everything.
