Gnus isn't the best place to document it, but I'm not sure smtpmail is
better.  Will it be found by searching through the normal emacs manuals?
Maybe even writing a new tls.texi to discuss all TLS related stuff is
warranted.  I don't know what the policy on new *.texi files is, if we
have too many already or whether having one per elisp package is
actually a good idea.
