Right, thanks.

That looks easy in the sense that it seems to only involve the 300
lines of src/tls/tls_drv.c, but difficult in that I have no experience
of low level SSL or XMPP programming.

Does ejabberd use a wide range of OpenSSL's functionality, or might
one of the light libraries with flakey standards coverage (e.g.,
yassl) work well enough?  It seems no-one's openssl compatibility
layer is actually compatible.
