[plt-scheme] PLT Server - SSL available?

I'm not aware of any bindings for the OpenSSL library
but this question has come up a few times before, so
people are definitely interested.

The basic approach is:

1. Create Scheme bindings for the OpenSSL functions
(e.g.: Ryan Culpepper has bindings for 2 functions
from the OpenSSL library in his Postgres driver)

2. Create a Scheme layer that mimics the current
socket interface but using the OpenSSL bindings.

3. Parameterise the web server by the socket library
(probably using units) so you can switch in different
socket types.  I imagine the developers of the web
server would help out here as SSL support is a fairly
important feature.

None of the above strike me as particularly difficult.
 Writing C bindings, though, is very tedious.
