Your wish is my command ;)

I have been working on this very package, right now called Jessie:
<http://metastatic.org/source/jessie/>. The status now is that the
javax.net.ssl classes are implemented and may be complete, but the
actual SSL implementations have only just begun.

The code is targeted at Classpath (it requires classes in the
gnu.java.security package) and will likely use GNU Crypto for its crypto
algs (in which case it will have to wait until we get RSA and DH).
