[issue1339] smtplib starttls() should ehlo() if it needs to
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Bill Fenner:
smtplib's "complex" methods, login and sendmail, try to EHLO or HELO if
it hasn't been done yet. login also checks to see if the EHLO response
included the ability to do authorization.
starttls seems to me to be similar in nature: why should it not try to
EHLO or HELO, and check that self.has_extn("starttls")?
