That's indeed a good thought!

A pretty big nit on your approach though:

Using SSL_peek() like that is a big no-no. First, it won't build if you build
libcurl without SSL support. Then, it won't build if you build with GnuTLS
instead of OpenSSL.

SSL-related functions need to be offered by the generic (SSL-library agnostic)
interface (Curl_ssl_ prefixed) provided by sslgen.c, to allow us to support it
in an independent manner.
