Working code or it didn't happen. (And it should scale too.)
I have some (mostly) working code which replaces tulip's "pollster" classes with "proactor" classes for select(), poll(), epoll() and IOCP. See
The IOCP proactor does not support ssl (or ipv6) so main.py does not succeed in downloading from xkcd.com using ssl. Using the other proactors it works correctly.
It wouldn't be crazy to add an in-memory counterpart to SSLSocket in Python 3.4 (*). It could re-use the same underlying _ssl._SSLSocket, but initialized with a "memory BIO" in OpenSSL jargon. PyOpenSSL already has something similar, which is used in Twisted.
(an in-memory SSL object probably only makes sense in non-blocking mode)
(*) patches welcome :-)
