[offlineimap] offlineimap.conf.minimal should have some hints about configuring TLS. (#263)

I don't get the point. Minimal stands for what it is: a *minimal* configuration file. This helps to figure out what's mandatory to get started but won't help much at setting things plain right.

I guess that in the next two weeks, someone else will complain that he's got bitten by the default ssl protocols (or whatever) not matching its use case. And in the next month, someone else will complain about yet another expectation he had as a default value and missing from the minimal conf. In the end we would have the full documentation in the minimal configuration file. :-1: 

I'm not pretending that the default ssl value can't be change. I'm pointing out that the minimal config should stay minimal, IMHO.

This might worth encouraging the user to make some checks about security options, though. But this would be a very small comment. No more.

Also, you should read http://offlineimap.org/doc/dco.html. ,-)
