Apparently, this has been already done. One could compile Emacs with
GNUTLS support. But, of course it doesn't work on Woe32... Go figure!

Long story short, I made it work somehow. I'm using it with POP3,
IMAP4 and SMTP using SSL/TLS and STARTTLS.

It's still a bit flaky when trying to connect to a server (probably
some kind of race condition), but once connected it works like a
charm.

I'll prepare a patch when I find the time after work.
