Subject Re: LDAPTrustedMode has the wrong scope...

+1, allowing mod_authnz_ldap to override the default makes a lot more
sense.  Unless you are already working on a patch, I will try to put
something together today.  But after today I will be offline for the
next two days.

Thinking about this some more - I'm not keen on the idea of adding
directive to mod_authnz_ldap, because when the configuration-via-LDAP
happens, and other potential LDAP modules happen, then we end up with
directive soup as each module has it's own variation of

The idea that it be possible to set the SSL mode inside mod_authnz_ldap
still really useful - what we could do is this:

AuthLDAPURL ldap://<etc>
AuthLDAPURL ldaps://<etc>
AuthLDAPURL SSL ldap://<etc>
AuthLDAPURL STARTTLS ldap://<etc>

In other words, combine the SSL mode in a TAKE12 option, with an
SSL mode prefix.

The LDAPTrustedMode directive could stay so as to define the default
overriding the default if the user wanted).
