English is my native language. I would write "An SSL socket". I.e.
'an' and capitalised SSL. I would do that for the reasons Christian
referenced and also because this is what the RFC does.

  >grep -ic "an SSL" rfc2246.txt
  tmp >grep -ic "a SSL" rfc2246.txt

Andrew and Henrik, if you still "I don't think" and "I still believe", can
you provide some evidence for you beliefs?

Fixing the Swenglish in the OTP docs is a good thing. Thanks for doing
it, Christian.
