On second thought, there are a few good reasons not to
support LDAP over SSL.

1) LDAP over SSL is deprecated.
2) No standard for LDAP over SSL.
3) No well-defined API for LDAP over SSL.

I guess I rather only add LDAP over SSL support AFTER
LDAPv3/SASL/TLS has been implemented and the developers
still believe they have a need for it.

However, I do believe we should add multiple listener
support now...
