Coil is experimental - more a proof of concept than an actual working system 
(though it works pretty decently for adding TCP servers.) The problem with 
it is that adding new things to Coil is too time consuming and tedious, and 
it's not flexible enough. At some point we may have a go at rewriting it 
from scratch based on the lessons we learned.

Meanwhile, you could add support for SSL if you wanted too - it's not too hard.
