I thought of that, and it works for most applications, but it would also be
nice to support profiles eg. different protocols, ports, etc.
Kinda the way putty does it - if you have a profile by that name it uses that
otherwise it uses the defaults.

Hmm.. I see you did it by talking to ssl directly. If you want to support
different protocols link to cvsapi... have a look at the extnt source - it's
really simple and could be abused to make a proxy pretty easily (which is what
I was intending to do).
Of course yours has the advantage that it's completely standalone...

Decisions.. do I put something together or let you do all the work? :)
