I looked at the patch and it looks fine. I also think that the separation of
use and the connection state in two variables actually makes sense, since the
'use' one is actually saying that it _wants_ to use SSL rather than that it is
activated already.

I don't think 'use' is ever used after a failure anyway...

I did some minor cosmetic and functional changes in it... unfortunately I
found that it breaks test 509 (both before and after my edits) for a reason I
haven't figured out so it hasn't been committed.

I've attached my updated version of the patch.
