Usage of stunnel for configuring secure services as a default?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – Ok, I am aware nothing will beat manual security configuration through your standard daemon config files, but is it bad practice to configure stunnel for all services on say, a production machine(ldap, nfs, nis) etc? Apart from a bug in the implementation of stunnel, does it really matter? I really like the fact stunnel binds ssl on any arbitrary port, even if the application in question is not natively compatible with openssl. (HowTos)
