Yup.  It is quite some work, though, and doesn't fit perfectly with
the current design of GnuTLS.  Nikos thought it would be easier to
create a new project, GnuDTLS or whatever, and implement it
separately.  It could copy code from GnuTLS.

Having a separate library for it is a good idea in general, DTLS is
typically useful for embedded devices.

Please send patches. ;) I have little clue about OpenCDK so I'd be
happy to give you CVS access if you want to work on it.  Copyright
assignments to the FSF are required, though.
