Sorry, we can't put it in the docs.  The VM manual can only describe VM, not
how to configure stunnel, which is an independent program.

On the other hand, this kind of stuff can go on EmacsWiki, and anybody can
put things in there.

What I can do is add mention of the stunnel additional-configuration-file
variable in the manual, which should have been there in the first place.  On
the other hand, I don't know what else to say there other than to summarise
the doc string.  (Actually, I see that the doc string is self-contradictory
too. Sigh..)  If somebody can contribute some text that I can put in the
manual, I would appreciate it.
