"ldap ssl" is about if we should use TLS to protect the LDAP connection
between Samba's pdb_ldap passdb module and the (typically) OpenLDAP
Sometimes this is over ldapi:// and doesn't matter, but often this will
be a remote (eg organisational central) LDAP server. Even with local
servers this matters when chasing a referral from the local slave to
the master server to write a password change.
As the AD domain member case is quite different, even if using similar
code, a new option was added.
