i'd like to force rdepends packagers to choose the right libcurl3-*-dev
for them. anyway i agree with you about the wrong time to enforce this.

i'll re-introduce libcurl3-dev as a transition package depending on
libcurl3-openssl-dev. anyway i don't consider this urgent and it will
be solved with the next upload, which is not too far away.
