TLS/SSL future direction

It seems like ldaps is becoming obsolete, from comments I've seen on this
list in the last few months.  I have Solaris machines currently
authenticating against an OpenLDAP 2.0.18 slapd through TLS and SSL.  I'm
trying to get my linux machines to do the same.  Would it behoove me to
switch everything to TLS-only?  If this is the case, how can I restrict port
389 to only accept start_tls connections?

TLS and SSL are always mentioned together even though they're seemingly
quite different implementations.  What gives?
