I agree (and had already suggested such) but it seems to have been
ignored out of hand. Hence my later suggestion, which is suboptimal
buts seems to be verbose enough to not be ignored. ^_^

Unless I missed something earlier in my search for users of those callbacks, or
the gnuTLS support in libcurl is broken (apart from not supporting the
callbacks which are the root of this discussion) I don't see why gnuTLS cannot
be just slipped in underneath libcurl with no packages the wiser.

gnuTLS has versioned symbols, right?
