Well if it did monitor the protocol to add support for a "STARTTLS" command for
daemons or clients that don't have that natively, that would be cool and the
name'd be justified, but AFAICT it doesn't.

Also, after 30 seconds of investigation it seems that the OpenSSL-GPL licensing
concern applies. You'd probably want to see about sorting that out before doing
a whole lot of work on it.
