curl 7.14.0-5: OpenSSL vs GnuTLS is still a problem

hi all,

  with curl 7.14.0-5 currently in incoming, i added two new packages
libcurl3-gnutls and libcurl3-gnutls-dev. libcurl3 and libcurl3-gnutls
conflict each other since both install libcurl.so.3.0.0 in /usr/lib/.

doesn't this still scare you? then try to figure what will happen when
you install the first package depending on libcurl3-gnutls on a system
with openoffice (or php4-curl, vorbis-tools, ...) installed.

i realized this only while i was writing the packages conflicts but the
more i think at it the more i feel nervous.  libcurl3 has ~80 rdepends
(when they became so many?!?) and i'd like to not be f*cked too hard
trying to figure the best solution.

should i really let 7.14.0-5 be installed? should i change the soname of
the gnutls variant? i suppose other packages already had this problem,
any wise advice?

many thanks.
