You missed the point. I was talking about GnuTLS internals. GnuTLS
only checks for EINTR and EAGAIN. So, I *have* to translate
WSAEWOULDBLOCK to EAGAIN when reporting errors to GnuTLS.

That's true, WSAEINTR already gets mapped. Must have missed that.

That it is OK to mess with EWOULDBLOCK's definition.

All the GnuTLS related functions (even if Windows specific).

I'm usually a bit reluctant to create public functions in a module
which only serve a special purpose in one single other module.
