It’s not a “new implementation”, rather additional (and IMO important)
features that are added.

So it works as before, meaning that data is passed through a GnuTLS
“session record port”.  And that, in turn, that means this is not
suspendable, unfortunately.

To address that, it should be possible to avoid the session record port
and instead use the lower-level GnuTLS ‘record-receive!’ and
‘record-send’ procedures.  This is left as an excercise to the reader.
