There isn't?  I saw some arguments that explain why it's not possible to
convert all curl-using applications from OpenSSL to GNUTLS without a
recompile due to unavailable ABI changes, but I thought it was pretty clear
that the default going forward should be the one whose license is maximally
compatible with that of applications using libcurl (i.e., GNUTLS).
