Hi haskellers,

I'ld like to announce the tls package [1][2], which is a native implementation
of the TLS protocol, client and server.  It's currently mostly supporting SSL3,
TLS1.0 and TLS1.1.  It's got *lots* of rough edges, and a bunch of unsupported
features, but it's humming along, and at each iteration it's becoming more
tighly secure and featureful.

I would recommend against using this implementation in a production system just
yet, or in an aggressive environment either (specially for the server side);
I don't think it should necessary fail, but it's still an early implementation
with probable API changes on the way.
