To implement StartTLS you need to do two things:

1. Decode the LDAP extended operation.
2. Tell the network I/O layer to install SSL/TLS on the connection
and initiate its handshake.

The existing filter should be fine, as long as the code that

(and as long as filters can be installed on-the-fly on a
connection that is already open).
