[stunnel-users] [PATCH] Unix socket tunnelling

I was looking for solution for tunneling a MySQL socket through
encrypted IPv6. And I found this bunch of patches for stunnel

Unfortunately, there's no patch for stunnel 4.44. So I rebased it in
order to make it work (I attached it to this email).
FYI, I’m not the author of this patch, I just adapted it for stunnel
4.44. The author seems to be this french company
<http://www.exceliance.fr/en>. I just glanced over it, I didn't review

Anyway, I think it would be a great thing to integrate it into stunnel
in order to avoid rebasing the patch for every stunnel new version.
Besides, it is a very useful feature.

Integrating this patch would imply updating the documentation of stunnel
configuration. As far as I know it add another general option
“unix-sockets-dir” which is “/var/run/” by default. All the socket path
must start by a slash, and this path will be appended to
“unix-sockets-dir” option.

Thank you.
