Did not Bluetail send the ssl driver to OTP? The Bluetail ssl driver was
a clone of gen_tcp. It did support reading sessions (even reading
encoded sessions that could be sent to other nodes or stored in mnesia
for distrubuted SSL sessions :-)

My idea is to integrate ssl in gen_tcp to make life alot easier. Think
of STARTTLS/HTTP Upgrade .... 

It is also "easy" to snoop SSLv3/SessionID's, then push back the
client-hello with gen_tcp:unrecv, then ssl:accept (VOILA)

Bluetail folks, did you send the ssl_drv ????
