TLS endpoint that wraps another endpoint

The current way of doing SSL with endpoints involves using listenSSL/connectSSL. This means you need one for each of TCPv4 and TCPv6, and we'll need one for the hostname endpoint too. And, you can't use it with e.g. a SOCKS endpoint.

Better would be an endpoint (or maybe I mean pair of endpoints, one client one server) that wrap an existing endpoint. Ideally this wouldn't even call transport.startTLS, but rather use the TLS protocol implementation directly.
