[erlang-questions] Distributed Erlang transport over SSL

Is it possible to have SSL distributed transport enabled to connect to
selective nodes without a requirement to run SSL in the whole cluster?

We have a configuration with N local nodes, and a handful of remote nodes,
where connectivity to remote nodes is done over Internet, and would like
only those connections to use SSL.

While the http://www.erlang.org/doc/apps/ssl/ssl_distribution.html chapter
describes in detail how to run a node with SSL support, but there's doesn't
seem to be any documentation of if it's possible to give hints to a given
node to use transport alternative to the one used by current node at
startup when connecting to given nodes.

If this is not supported, I would opt for this feature request as this
seems to be a very general case when running node configurations spanning
multiple clusters.
