you are right. I found the same while implementing SSL with LuaSEC in my project.

Currently I am trying get LuaSec and Copas work together in a non-blocking fashion, which is not that easy as there are some more issues between the socket library and the Copas which make a non-blocking connect() not 100% reliable on some OS.
The LuaSec functions in between complicate this a little bit further:-)

I remember it being surpisingly simple to get LuaSec and Copas to play
nice. In short, just call ssl.wrap() inside your handler function.

I needed it working for a project once, and it looks like my patch was

Took me a while, but got into this matter rather deep. From this line [1],
it seems to me that it does not do non-blocking ssl. The timeout has a
default of 10 seconds, which means that it still might block for 10 seconds.
The LuaSec  ssl wrapper will return "wantread" or "wantwrite" on a
non-blocking socket, which doesn't seem to be handled in the code. So from
what I see, the timeout is high enough to not encounter it... (but hence it
is blocking)

Or am I missing something?
