Yeah, I had thought that the curl implementation _was_ the default if
you have curl. But we just build it by default, and you have to manually
enable it. So I agree it has not gotten nearly as much testing as I had
thought, and as you found, it diverges from the earlier implementation
in quite a few areas.

So I think we would need to take any deprecation much more slowly than I
had first thought (and your patches in the nearby thread are moving in a
good direction).
