I have checked this and it turned out, that mose TLS options are global,
and cannot be set per LDAPObject. 
To support global options (which can eventualy be available as object
options) I have moved part of setattr and getattr of LDAPObject to other
functions, which can also be used without object for setting global

Here is (working) fragment of python-ldap program:

import ldap

Should I commit the changes (as soon as I polish them a bit more)?
And is there any way to make it work like this?:


It is easy for object (that is the way it is done for LDAPObject), but
is there any way to implement this in module?

And one more thing:

Do we really need suport for OpenLDAP < 2.x?
Now python-ldap compiled with OpenLDAP1 and python-ldap compiled with
OpenLDAP2 are so different as they are different modules. And the code
is quite hard to maintain.
It was long time ago, when OpenLDAP2 was experimental.
