I"ve been looking through the code trying to figure out a way to do  
this (or to extend Vortex to allow it) and I'm stumped. As far as I  
can tell, the point where the incoming connection is TLS-ified and  
ready to use is when the function __vortex_listener_second_step_accept  
returns. But there's no notification to the client that this has  

Am I missing something? Or would I need to add a callback to the  
client code at this point? (If so, I can't figure out where to put  

(I realize this is an atypical situation, because normally the process  
accepting a connection is a server that waits passively for the first  
client request. But my app is P2P, and in some cases a peer may want  
to send messages to an incoming connection as soon as it opens.)
