I said I'd try to implement that in GNUTLS, however I haven't created
anything useful yet. It's not trivial at all.

There is one thing that may be helpful for DTLS support, and also for
some regular TLS uses, is to have a different way to pass data to
GNUTLS. Currently, you either do gnutls_handshake(), gnutls_read() or
gnutls_write(), and those functions call read() and write() on the
filedescriptors themselves. I can specify custom push and pull
functions of course, but that doesn't change much. I'd like to see a
function to push data from a (D)TLS stream, received by the application
itself, to GNUTLS, and have GNUTLS invoke a callback if it contained
application data.
