For httpd-2.1 - the patch is entangled across apr and httpd.
The httpd side shouldn't require a cheap branch, since it should
be forward progress which won't affect existing configurations.
The apr side might need to be twisted off into a temporary branch
but we can see how awkward the code changes come out.

Looking for any other comment or alternative or ldap URI syntax
before we commit the LDAPStartTLS (or AuthLDAPStartTLS which seems
to be where this directive should be, associated with an AuthLDAPURL?)
