[rabbitmq-discuss] Configuring Auth LDAP Backend using LDAP+SSL/TLS

Currently you can't set SSL options for LDAP connections, you can only 
set {use_ssl, true} to make a connection without presenting a client 
certificate. I guess this should be fixed.

Also you have {port, 389} which is unlikely to work as it's the non-SSL 
port and I'm not at all convinced eldap (the underlying Erlang LDAP 
library) supports StartTLS.

So the only configuration that could work at the moment is

{use_ssl, true},
{port,    636}

Cheers, Simon
