Yes, it's implemented in two daemons, using libmicrohttpd (for receiving)
and libcurl (for sending).

libmicrohttpd is linked with gnutls, and libcurl is linked with nss.
It's a bit unfortunate, but hard to work around. OTOH, it is likely that
only one of those daemons would be running on a given machine, so the
fact that they use different cryptostacks might not be that important.

The two daemons can be fairly well locked down, since they don't need
any prileges apart from access to the journal files. So they'll run as separate
users, the receiver with PrivateNetwork=yes. I also plan to add some seccomp
filters later on.
