Yeah this is a very sad point indeed.  Luckily I can focus on other things
until SSL arrives and 1.5 is the standard production JDK in prominence.  The
more I think about it the more I get depressed however I would not let this
steer us away for sticking close to NIO.  It has the standard selection
mechanism we need.  If forced to we should be able to implement a
SSLSocketChannel for 1.4 no?
