Even if it was legal, I would strongly object against replacing
python-pycurl with the OpenSSL version. In that case one would have to
comply to different license requirements depending on the functions one
uses within pycurl. Even if properly documented, this is asking for
undistributable code to be written, which might take ages to resolve.
