Thanks for confirming this is doable.

Once again reviewing the unified installer's README, I see I needed to
install libssl-dev (which I did not do) as well as libssl (which I did)
before running the Plone installer. So installed libssl-dev, restarted
Plone, unchecked "Disable TLS" and tried the Gmail server again, and I got
something a little different:

Error: Failed to create your account: we were unable to send your password
to your email address: SMTP AUTH extension not supported by server.
