[Mongrel] mongrel_in_a_tunnel

Hi list:

I started to make a quick GemPlugin command [ssl::start] that sets up  
an stunnel before calling the normal [start] command.

so

$ mongrel_rails ssl:start

will do everything that start normally does and configure/setup an  
stunnel.


The question...

Obviously this plugin will require stunnel to be installed. What do  
you think is the best move:

1) nothing, just require that people install stunnel themselves.
2) make the gem attempt to compile stunnel for them.
3) lock myself in a box and make ruby-stunnel bindings/extension.




Thanks.
