oh, many thanks for the stop :)

i saw the bug report, i'm sorry to not have commented the request which
i find absolutely reasonable. i'll try to figure out if curl may suffer
from limitations due to the use of gnutls in place of openssl.

i doubt seriously a new package like libcurl3-gnutls is appropriate,
but let me know your opinion.

is this stuff urgent?
