revOpenDatabase over SSH tunnel?

I dropped mysql after the first run with my software—I don’t know if mysql could have handled it at the time, but LiveCode could only send a single command per transaction (afaik, this is still the case).  And with several hundred transactions to start a session . . . (there were also issues about lack of actual rollback).

I switched to postgresql, which can trivially connect remotely.  Unfortunately, even though the option is there in the command, and Postgres supports it, livecode still can’t do an encrypted connection to a postgres server.

If I were going to continue, I suppose I would do it through an https connection to the server, possibly encrypting before sending and letting the server decrypt.
