This is great, thank you! I was wondering what to use for TLS (mbedTLS
looks interesting if the target language is plain C), but libtls API
feels more straightforward. I will still probably have to experience
the wonders of cross-compiling for Android.

Thanks for confirming that this approach is viable.

I wonder if it is considered a sane thing to wrap a library implemented
in Lua as C/C++ code.

Best regards,
