This is exactly what I've ended up doing.  In fact the only Win32 
specific thing at all is the Makefile that explicitly links to the 
pre-existing DLL.  Even the header file and the included OpenSSL header 
files should compile regardless of the platform, as long as it can do 
dynamic linking.  I think it should be in good shape for extension to 
other platforms, though I don't have a Mac or Acorn or PocketPC to build 
makefiles for those platforms.  As long as the APIs I use don't change, 
it should be a matter of dropping in new dll/so/whatever-acorn-uses as 
they become available.
