[PATCH] send-email: remove documented requirement for Net::SMTP::SSL




git-send-email uses the TLS support in the Net::SMTP core module from
recent versions of Perl. Documenting the minimum version is complex
because of separate numbering for Perl (5.21.5~169), Net:SMTP (2.34)
and libnet (3.01). Version numbers from commit:
bfbfc9a953 ("send-email: Net::SMTP::starttls was introduced in v2.34",
2017-05-31)

Users of older Perl versions without Net::SMTP::SSL installed will get a
clear error message.
