You are probably right. I got lost while trying to read the library
code. I just did not want to do the decision of combining the two
options. I am happy that you did. It makes the API clearer. Good work.

The included patch fixes a bug in the comm library. Previously the
options got trashed when someone was used get_banner, like
hddtemp-info did. The fix also adds a new parameter eopts to method
tryssl. The new parameter can be used to set options for the early
receive, which takes place before the actual data exchange.

p.s. It is a bit illogical that the early receive option is turned on
from the regular opts, and not from the eopts, but I did not change
this as some code might rely on turning it on the old way.

I don't understand the reasoning for breaking out a separate options
table. The module documentation already explains what is supposed to be
supported in the options. It was a bug that opencon didn't support them.

Anyway, I used the part of your patch that changed sd:receive to read,
and it now works like I expect.
