+/**
+ * APR LDAP initialise function
+ *
+ * This function is responsible for initialising an LDAP
+ * connection in a toolkit independant way. It does the
+ * job of ldap_init() from the C api.
+ *
+ * It handles both the SSL and non-SSL case, and attempts
+ * to hide the complexity setup from the user. This function
+ * assumes that any certificate setup necessary has already
+ * been done.
+ *
+ * If SSL or STARTTLS needs to be enabled, and the underlying
+ * toolkit supports it, the following values are accepted for
+ * secure:
+ *
+ * APR_LDAP_NONE: No encryption
+ * APR_LDAP_SSL: SSL encryption (ldaps://)
+ * APR_LDAP_STARTTLS: Force STARTTLS on ldap://
+ * @remark The Novell toolkit is only able to set the SSL mode via this
+ * function. To work around this limitation, set the SSL mode here if no
+ * per connection client certificates are present, otherwise set secure
+ * APR_LDAP_NONE here, then set the per connection client certificates,
+ * followed by setting the SSL mode via apr_ldap_set_option(). As Novell
+ * does not support per connection client certificates, this problem is
+ * worked around while still being compatible with other LDAP toolkits.
+ * @param pool The pool to use
+ * @param ldap The LDAP handle
+ * @param hostname The name of the host to connect to. This can be either a
+ * DNS name, or an IP address.
+ * @param portno The port to connect to
+ * @param secure The security mode to set
+ * @param result_err The returned result
