[erlang-questions] ELDAP: peer verification fails due to mangled SSL options?

Currently, eldap does not support peer verification (equivalent
to ldap.conf's TLS_REQCERT).

Turns out eldap:do_connect/3 always prefixes the caller's ssl options with
{verify, 0} under the covers which renders a {verify, verify_peer} from the
caller ineffective:

https://github.com/erlang/otp/blob/maint/lib/eldap/src/eldap.erl#L392

As far as I can tell, there's no good/obvious reason for this -- and after
removing this automatic prefix, it works as one would expect.


Just a bug or anybody know of some rationale why verification is prevented
this way?
