Both [1/3] and [2/3] look good. However, I'm curious about this one:
Net::SMTP::SSL inherits from IO::Socket::SSL, where new() is defined.
In the documentation for IO::Socket::SSL,

  $ perldoc IO::Socket::SSL

I can see examples where SSL_verify_mode and SSL_ca_path are passed to
new(). So, I'm not sure what this patch is about.
