It is possible provided your local OpenLDAP libs were built with
'./configure --with-tls' and python-ldap was built with 'ssl crypto' 
(without quotes) added to line 'libs' in setup.cfg.

See Build/setup.cfg.suse-linux for an example for setup.cfg with SSL/TLS and 
SASL support.

See Demo/ in python-ldap's source distribution.
