I did recall that he said it was able to use gnutls.  The gist of the
remarks was that it was only temporary, since there was some discussion
that someone's opinion was that it wasn't needed.  I did take a look
at gnutls, just in case but a quick read of the code demonstrated that
it wasn't very portable, so I put it aside until the issue would come
