ok, we are hooked into the libflac6 transition, let's start the curl one.

my wish is to upload curl 7.14.1 with the following package layout:

 - curl                  (OpenSSL, linked to libcurl-openssl.so.3)
 - libcurl3              (GnuTLS, soname: libcurl.so.3)
 - libcurl3-openssl      (OpenSSL, soname: libcurl-openssl.so.3)
 - libcurl3-gssapi       (OpenSSL, MIT Kerberos 5)
 - libcurl3-dev          (OpenSSL, depends: libssl-dev)
 - libcurl3-openssl-dev  (GnuTLS, depends: libgnutls-dev)
 - libcurl3-dbg

this way libcurl3 and libcurl3-openssl can be contemporarily installed.

curl command line depends on package libcurl3-openssl. BTW, is
libcurl3-openssl legal or it should be libcurl-openssl3?

any more comments?
