nALFS2 communication security

At a minimum, nALFS2 will need to support having its communications 
tunneled over ssh (which may not require anything special in nALFS2 at 
all, I just wanted to get it documented).

Ideally nALFS itself could be taught to use OpenSSL to communicate when 
needed, but that may be an inefficient use of our time since there are 
good encrypted communication solutions already out there (OpenSSH, 
OpenVPN, IPSEC, etc.).

In any case, people are going to want to be able to use this tool to 
control a remote system across a public network connection, so let's 
keep that in mind as we move ahead.
