Yes, you would have to do a little surgery to get SSL support grafted
onto NIE (see Eckhart's recent reply on this subject here:
<>), but
then each app that needs SSL support would have to be modified to
support SSL as well.

You may want to talk to the developers of PT100 (see
<>) for assistance as
it took a bit of work to get it optimized enough to run smoothly on
the MessagePad 2100 and it's still on the sluggish side.
