StartTLS URL extension

We really ought to have a way to allow clients to make libldap use StartTLS without having to code their own calls into libldap for that purpose. I think it would be useful to allow specifying StartTLS in the extension field of the LDAP URL. Then at least it can be configured into ldap.conf forgotten about.

The code for ldap_initialize() should look for the URL extension field, and act on it if StartTLS / is present.

Any comments?
