Yep, easy enough to see what to change there.

I also just realized that my original use case was for:

new client -> IPv4 encrypted -> forwarder -> Unix unencrypted -> old server

as a way to allow encrypted network traffic without having to rewrite an
old server; but it would also be nice to allow:

old client -> Unix unencrypted -> forwarder -> IPv4 encrypted -> new server

as a way to add encrypted network traffic without having to rewrite an
old client.  So it does look like I want to teach the forwarder about
TLS connections after all, someday.  (The whole idea of a plugin that
lets you add arbitrary features on top of another existing NBD endpoint
is cool!)
