default? one has to install libcurl3-gnutls-dev or libcurl3-openssl-dev
in order to build something with libcurl, there is no default choice for
the developer. nobody can now hide behind a "i didn't know libcurl3-dev
brings openssl in my pants".

about libcurl3 being linked with openssl instead of gnutls, i'm
not personally biased. i only wanted to stay on the safe side [0].
if libcurl4 comes, i will surely point it to gnutls.
