In fact, correct me if I'm wrong, but it was added into stock Postfix
in the latter part of '04.

There are numerous references to it the Postfix/TLS patch in the
postfix.com Changlelog:
http://mirrors.rootservices.net/postfix/official/postfix-2.2.5.HISTORY
 including this:

20041221

	Fixes for TLS_README by Victor Duchovni. File:
	proto/TLS_README.html.

	NON-PRODUCTION Bugfix: (bug introduced while adopting
	Postfix/TLS patch).  The client code had become too similar
	to the server implementation, and also required a host
	certificate and key. Fix by Victor Duchovni. File:
	tls/tls_client.c.



Without scouring the Postfix archives for an exact date, from this
date it puts the TLS patch being integrated into the main Postfix tree
sometime before Dec 21 '04, right?
