It's already done. With uclient-fetch, you can simply install any
ustream-ssl variant (along with ca-certificates if you want to have
proper validation), and it'll immediately be SSL capable. That was my
main motivation behind replacing wget with ustream-ssl.

The aforementioned size increase is probably either a bug or a
measurement error (see my other mail regarding that subject).
