Tl;dr: Dirt simple to use, uses a thread so it's non-blocking, configurable, supports HTTPS connections.
Let me know what you think, I am open to new ideas / modifications if you think it needs it!
I've not tried to bundle luasec with Love2D, so I'm relying on something I know works for now. I've read into it a few times and abandoned the idea each time, although it has been a long time since I looked into it.
Edit: Also, I wonder where is the best place to learn of the new version so I can make sure I keep up? I imagine there'll be a blog post, but I don't always keep up with those.
