[g] Agreed about general efficiency, but with TLS, you would need a
different context for each of these streams.
Coordinating the appropriate streams and associated contexts would be
complex and perhaps it's better managed at a higher level?
That way we can have the low level TLS service taking care of one
stream/contexts and have transport or even higher level still,
deal with handling of multiple streams.
