Maybe I didn't word that clearly enough, but last I tried it, which was a
version or two back now, one server instance would support one at a time of:
TLS, or username/pass, or TLS+username/pass.  It wouldn't do combinations
of TLS and username/pass as alternatives.

As I say, you can work around it by running two or more servers, but you're 
then obliged to guess in advance how to partition up your ifconfig-pool
space.   It seems a pity, when the server is managing that space anyway.
