mod_authz_ldap can't do TLS or SSL LDAP

Description of problem:
Our LDAP server is configured so that binding is only possible with
TLS or SSL, since local security policies require all user credentials
for all services to be encrypted on the wire (as well as much of the
information potentially returned by LDAP queries)
mod_authz_ldap doesn't have a mechanism to force it to use TLS or SSL
(or, as best I can tell, even the capability of doing so at all) when
connecting to an LDAP server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install mod_authz_ldap
2. Try to find a way to configure it to do TLS or SSL when connecting
to the LDAP server
3. Give up when you figure out that it can't be done.
Internal RFE bug #119629 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Thank you for the suggestion. It was passed along to product
management, but not committed for a future release.
