Speaking of which -- it's quite a mouthful to say:

(open-network-stream
 "foo" nil "dh-composite.badssl.com" "https"
 :tls-parameters (cons 'gnutls-x509pki (gnutls-boot-parameters
                                        :hostname "dh-composite.badssl.com")))

I've been meaning to add a :tls keyword to `open-network-stream' that
would make

(open-network-stream "foo" nil "dh-composite.badssl.com" "https" :tls t)

a short way to write the above.  I.e., the default TLS parameters (which
is what you need in 99.9% of the cases) would be used if you just say
:tls t.

Does that sound OK to you, Eli?
