I was looking into making a [httpsget]  external but the whole TLS thing
seems very difficult.
For my purposes on linux I use [shell] with wget to save the data to a
file, then open it with [binfile].
I was wondering if there is some cross-platform library to do the ssh, as
I'm sure implementing it from scratch would take forever and be very
error-prone. Not to mention doing it using vanilla objects....
