Why can't you build-depend on libcurl4-gnutls-dev?

I agree, that the current situation wrt to libcurl sucks.
But I definitely think that libraries (such as libraptor) should link against
the gnutls version of libcurl, otherwise you get the previous situation where
packages will start to link against OpenSSL (via indirect dependencies) without
having the proper OpenSSL exemption and thus are not distributable.
So imho  libcurl4-gnutls should be preferred where possible.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
