As I'm solely using TLS secured LDAP connection *everywhere* I also implied
TLS.  Still I assume opening the syncrepl connection a few times again is
nothing compared to the majority LDAP clients opening connections for every
single LDAP simple bind request.  So if it simplifies error handling which
likely results in more robustness, I'd strongly prefer that.
