Well, if you're saying :nowait, it means that you're setting up to talk
to the process asynchronously.  So you'll be using process filters and
sentinels to talk to it.  Otherwise you'll be using
accept-process-output I think.  In either case, you're not involved with
the TLS negotiation -- it's not something you're ... relying on, it's
just there.

I mean, if you're opening a :nowait connection, and Emacs never becomes
idle ever, you're never getting your process-filtered output.  But
that's not something that happens.

I've tested all of that, but without a test suite.

Yes.  Somebody should write a test suite anyway.  :-)
