Hi Mike,
Thanks, I will look into that.  Now, given that I haven't read the Tarreau
doc yet, you can tell me to "read the ... manual", but...  does PROXY work
entirely *within* stunnel?  I don't have to add that proxy data in the
program that connects to client stunnel, do I?

Work day is almost over and then I can "relax" with that PROXY document.
