Summary0006671: New API support allowing to load the TLS library dynamically.
DescriptionIt would be nice to provide a new API support allowing to load the TLS library dynamically.

This feature would be useful to:

- allow to implement support other TLS libraries, like OpenSSL and mbedTLS (0004917 and 0004918);
- allow to distribute a single MHD library that supports HTTP or HTTPS, but without requiring the TLS libraries when starting only the HTTP server;
- allow to customize the TLS loading, but enabling/disabling specific options or flags regarding each TLS library;
- allow to enable/disable the TLS support at runtime.

This new API could be like an extension support, allowing the users (programmers) to implement new TLS extensions (backends).
