So this is now basically "static int use_curl = 1;".

Do we need a compile-time escape-hatch in case someone really needs
to avoid curl, e.g., because they have a too old version? I suppose
there is a conceptual difference between the "default", i.e., the value
of USE_CURL_DEFAULT that is assigned to "use_curl", and the "default
default", i.e., the value that is normally assigned to USE_CURL_DEFAULT.
