If Ton can do this with his program, I would guess that others can do it 
with curl until https is included in Revolution.

I recommend that those experimenting use files for info to the program 
and use "shell" rather than "open process".

(I saw in the cURL man that there are a couple ways to point to certs, 
but it is not clear whether there are some built-in root certs or 
whether one has to set this up if verification is needed.  Either way, 
with a little fiddling one can have https.)

Good work, Ton!
