I should have mentioned that I had seen this in the original email. I
think the major problem with this interface was that it was written in
the time before ByteStrings. Now that we have ByteStrings I think that
it makes a lot of sense for networking to use them.

However, it shouldn't be too hard to wrap HsOpenSSL in this interface.
I might try this this week. Then HTTPS should Just Work (maybe ;)
