Description (last modified by krzee king)

The last line reads as:

"It should be emphasized that this feature is optional and that the key file used with --tls-auth gives a peer nothing more than the power to initiate a TLS handshake. It is not used to encrypt or authenticate any tunnel data."

I think we could change it to say:

"It should be emphasized that this feature is optional and that the key file used with --tls-auth gives a peer nothing more than the power to initiate a TLS handshake. It is not used to encrypt or authenticate any tunnel data. Use --tls-crypt if you want to use the key file as a static key to encrypt the TLS channel instead"

Make that "authenticate and encrypt", and I fully agree. Will you send a patch to the list, or shall I cook one up?
