Re: HEADS UP: TLS "hard"

The main problem with here is that ldap.conf is a defaulting
mechanism which should have no effect unless the application

don't ask for default behavior, they ask for specific behavior.
They generally don't expect the library to be issuing LDAP
operations without their knowledge.
