Sounds cool :)

By the way, another suggestion from my practical experience: STunnel caches 
DNS query results, this is a bad idea when using services like 
dyndns.org... I've have numerous occasions where I had to whip out my 
command shell and net stop stunnel | net start stunnel to get the DNS 
resolution updated to reach my remote server on dynamic IP... Over here in 
germany, a lot of DSL lines have forced disconnect after 24 hrs online time 
(I heard that's due to the structure of their billing systems and can't be 
changed without dramatic amounts of work and money) so every time my remote 
computer gets disconnected, I have to restart STunnel here.
I'd suggest to make DNS caching configurable. If the user wishes so, keep 
the cached DNS info, otherwise resolve host names each time a connection is 
established (or every xx minutes or whatever).

Best regards,
