Coincidentally, night before last I downloaded the openssl source
and started trying to think about an SSL library.

The thing is, I have always wished for an SSL library that doesn't
do I/O, but just transforms data and leaves the I/O to you.  I guess
that's going to be a good deal more complicated, and in many
cases not worth it at all - so there would need to be an SSLIO
layer above it - but clinging to some vague reactive-object ideals
I imagine that this `pure' SSL core could fit into some kinds of
dispatching frameworks where the usual thing would be awkward.

Anyway, I'll write again in a few years if I get around to doing  
about it.
