  I just added following to TODO:

	- SSL/TLS client functionality has been asked for repeatedly.
	  To implement it we must rewamp the entire FILE* abstraction
	  based socket buffering at the smtp program, PLUS at
	  libta/mimeheaders.c ( writeheaders() ) as well...  Not so nice.

  Yes, it is doable, but *not* easy.
