Dear Emmanuel,

Not sure, for the main lib: due to the security considerations, an
implementation would be either inherently incomplete (suprise!), or
likely insecure (bad surprise). I don't like shipping either of these

However, if you do have a reasonably robust implementation, we could
certainly at least add it to the MHD *examples* / documentation for
other people to more easily find and use it.

Happy hacking!
