Clarification request: "connection" above is specifically "TLS connection",
or the combination of TLS connection and TCP (or other transport) connection?

If the former, and if it is legitimate to carry on using the transport
connection after the close of a TLS connection (including starting a new
TLS connection) - then, modulo passing the socket for the TLS-less transport
connection between the OP's processess, what he wanted seems partly viable.
