Historically, the JDK implementation of TLS (which we use in Jetty)
has been known for not being particularly fast and for being memory
I'm not surprised that a C implementation based on OpenSSL outperforms
JDK's, even though the JDK is adding intrinsics to exploit native CPU
instructions, so perhaps, eventually, it may compare.
