TLS transport fails for self-signed certificates #550

Because of this issue in Node which changed rejectUnauthorized from default false to true (see joyent/node#3949), the TLS negotiation fails for self-signed certificates. Using any kind of transport which utilizes XMLHttpRequest module, fails because no options are passed to the HTTPS request. See same issue opened for XMLHttpRequest here (driverdan/node-XMLHttpRequest#55).

Consider passing HTTP/HTTPS options in the Connect function and propagate them to each transport adaptor (poll, ws, flash) object being instantiated all the way to the XmlHttpRequest. The option object can also contain a custom Agent. I believe this custom agent was also requested for this module.
