   Seems reasonable.  I would have to take a closer look at it though.

It seems to me we can make ab.c TLS upgrade-aware by;

  1. recognizing the -s flag in conjunction with http: - that
     would set the ssl preference client-side.  (This would not
     alter the behavior of https:, or of -s without a scheme.)

  2. recognize upgrade-required and promote an http: connection
     to SSL when the server-side demands it.

Sane?

Bill
