[erlang-questions] Setting socket buffers on SSL sockets

The old ssl implementation has many limitations when it comes to socket
options, as it is a framework
around the openssl implementation and the actual ssl-socket is buried
deep down in openssl.
The new ssl implementation on the other hand is an erlang solution that
only uses openssl for payload
encryption/decryption and sining/verification through the
crypto-driver, but handles the communication part in erlang
and the latest ssl-3.10 supports all inet-socket-options. (Will be
released in R12B-5 on 5 of November)
The new implementation still will have a few limitations and hence can
not yet fully replace the old ssl but for the most
common case scenarios it will probably do fine.
