Subject: ocamlnet and https client (was: Re: [Caml-list] OCaml and SOAP)

In my further pursuit of native SOAP for OCaml ...

Has anyone ever managed to extend or twice ocamlnet's http_client into
making https (http over SSL) calls?

There seem to be various plausible ways to make this happen; off the
top of my head:

(1) Extend ocamlnet properly to support SSL.

(2) Fork some sort of external proxy which does http <-> https
translation and use the ocamlnet proxy feature.

(3) Write a custom Unixqueue.event_system which can do the http <->
https translation, perhaps using Mimram and Baelde's SSL bindings for
savonet ( , )

(4) Forget about ocamlnet and use libcurl/ocurl instead.

In the absence of (1), what do people suggest?
