Unfortunately, I see two problems.  One is that it seems to require
Posix.  I don't know if MSYS will work.  If it doesn't, then we would
have to use cygwin for windows.  So we still would not be able to make
standalone executables on Windows :(

A bigger problem is that it depends on openssl, and the openssl
license is deliberately incompatible with the GPL.  I would rather not
get into that kind of trouble again.  However, it might be possible to
replace all of that with Botan.  That would be some work, though.

As for silc, I had not looked at it extensively.  If they don't
implement basic things like sending packets, it may be better to use
something else.
