I don't think it'll go in for BLFS-1.0.  It's *far* too long since I've
used stunnel for me to do it (it was a long time ago when I was setting
up swat [samba admin tool] over a secure interface; I don't use swat any
more) and we all have a lot of work to do on the basic packages BLFS 
should cover first.

It's a possibilty for the future though.
