[racket] ssl-tcp-unit.rkt restrictions

I doubt there is a good reason for these restrictions. I imagine that
it works this way because it is only used by a few people and this is
all they needed. IIRC, only the hand-in server uses it in the tree.

I'm happy to work with you to improve it, if I understood what exactly
you wanted.
