Unless I'm confused LDAPTrustedClientCert isn't accepted in a
directory context, despite the manual entry.

When you add it to a vhost, it appears that it will be added (only )
to the global_certs array in the per-vhost module config -- but the
global_certs that are actually used are the ones in the base server

I verified with some simple trace in util_ldap that this is the case
-- the only time adding the ClientCerts to the global_certs array
works out is when they're in the base server config (which maks them
effectively indistinguishable from LDAPTrustedGlobalCert, except we're
pickier about what types of things will allow to be added)

There doesn't appear to be any opportunity for the
LDAPTrustedClientCert to do anything outside of the base server
config.  When we come back in on a per-connection basis we don't have
the client_certs stashed away anywhere, and we don't check
