Just a quick clarification: the http.sslBackend feature is in no way
Windows-only.  Sure, it was championed there, and sure, we had the first
multi-ssl-capable libcurl, but this feature applies to all libcurl
versions that are built with multiple SSL/TLS backends.

The two patches on top are Windows-only, of course, as they really apply
only to the Secure Channel backend (which *is* Windows-only).
