Thank you for your replies.

I still do not fully understand the way distribution over TLS works. I've just read in the (old) documentation that proto_dist requires a driver. Is this such a driver that you try to avoid? Is inet_ssl_dist using the same driver as inet_tcp_dist and hence requires a proxy? Is this why inet_tls_dist cannot use ssl:send/2 and ssl:recv/3 as f_recv and f_send handlers (lines 244 and 248)?
