I've used it a bit. My experiences have been mostly good. I just don't
think it's necessary in this case.

Confidentiality and authentication are handled at the application layer
in this case. I already have clients connecting from simple Internet
connections, so I can't afford to rely on the security of the network
layer too much.

Thanks for your input!
