Re: Another update of GNU TLS bindings

    GNUTLS is a library, OpenSSL is both a library and an application.
    William's ssl.el invokes the binary.  This is a inflexible method, it
    is complicated to find out what algorithms chosed during the TLS
    handshake, and generally difficult to do anything interactive during
    the TLS handshake.

I see why that method is not as flexible.  But it is nonetheless a
useful alternative.  If OpenSSL can do it, why can't we do it?

    Even if GNUTLS shipped with a binary allowing it to do all the things
    OpenSSL currently does, it would not be satisfactory.

Would this method be less satisfactory for GNUTLS than it is for OpenSSL?
