If you're asking whether stunnel can act as a content-rewriting proxy,
and modify the content of the pages that pass through it, changing all
"http://" references to "https://", keeping track of the Content-Length
headers and all that stuff, and also looking carefully for any dynamically
generated JavaScript strings that may be used as link targets...

...then, no, stunnel does not do that :)
