 DRP> nserver has SSL already, as well as CVSNT, I believe.

cvs-nserver has "network clients", which are basically equivalent to CVS
buffers (things which are defined in buffer.c).

Now I see that introducing those was an error, and I should have been
re-using buffers infrastructure (and maybe I shall return to buffers

SSL support in cvs-nserver consists of writing an "SSL network client".
Someone should (and possibly did) just write an implementation of
ssl_buffer, put them to ssl-buffer.c (and _NOT_ in client.c :), and
commit. I believe that's about two days worth of work, if you understand
the (rather simple) semantics of buffer.h and friends.

So, there is almost nothing to coordinate.
