After re-reading the thread, you're right.  Sorry for the confusion, I
thought it was just about adding the library support.

So this proposal is to enable GnuTLS support for all the builds,
including W32, and then to make (require 'gnutls) unnecessary because it
will be done by `open-network-stream' by default.  The user has to
explicitly turn off gnutls.el support in order to get the old behavior.
