I'd appreciate it if you took care of it, if you feel the patch is otherwise 
commit-worthy. It takes a pretty excessive amount of time to convince 
myself that it's really doing what I want it to (and only what I want it to).

I forgot to include a note for Misc/NEWS in the new patch version, 
by the way.

Okay. For the time being I left a note in the documentation pointing 
out that it had to be set False for starttls to be useful.
