It's not necessarily a goal, but it's easier to be complete this way,
and there's less of an arbitrariness about it. Where do you draw the
line of what is added as a convenience function and what isn't?
Anyway, thanks for your feedback. I've added the ssl-port->tcp-port
and ssl-port? procedures to the export list, documented them and
released a new openssl version as 1.3.
I've also added the necessary modifications to Spiffy and now it
supports HTTPS out of the box :)
