I have just looked at the sources and haven't thought too hard about it,
but doesn't it mean that compiling without USE_CURL_FOR_IMAP_SEND
results in a binary such that you must use --no-curl or get used to seeing
"warning: --curl not supported in this build"?

I did not intend to suggest that. Just to be clear, I am very unfamiliar
with most of the Git codebase. Please don't take anything I say as
advice. :) As a question about something you have or haven't already
thought about, sure. :)
