Is there any reason that we need to have this variable's value to be
"int"?  I _think_ in this patch, the variable is used to choose
between the default and "HTTP/2", and I do not think the updated
code can choose any other new value that may be supported by an even
newer cURL library without further update, i.e. we'd need a variant of
"if the configuration asks HTTP/2 then use CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION with
CURL_HTTP_VERSION_2" for the new choice.

So I'd think it would not add much value to force end users use a
rather cryptic "20" (vs "11") to choose between "2" and "1.1".  Why
not use spell it out, e.g. using the official name of the protocol
"HTTP/2" (vs "HTTP/1.1"), with a "const char *" instead?

The new configuration variable and the possible values it can take
must be documented, of course.  I think it would make the description
far less embarrassing if we say "HTTP/2" etc. rather than "20",
"11", etc.

Shouldn't this block also handle the other values, e.g. "11"?

I _think_ the curl_http_version variable (be it an deci-int, or a
const char *) should be initialized to a value that you can use to
notice that the configuration did not specify any, and then this
part should become more like

	if (curl_http_version &&
	    !get_curl_http_version_opt(curl_http_version, &opt))
		curl_easy_setopt(result, CURL_HTTP_VERSION, opt);

with a helper function like this:

static int get_curl_http_version_opt(const char *version_string, long *opt)
{		
	int i;
	static struct {
		const char *name;
		lnog opt_token;
	} choice[] = {
		{ "HTTP/1.1", CURL_HTTP_VERSION_1_1 },
		{ "HTTP/2", CURL_HTTP_VERSION_2 },
	};

	for (i = 0; i < ARRAY_SIZE(choice); i++) {
		if (!strcmp(version_string, choice[i].name)) {
			*opt = choice[i].opt_token;
			return 0;
		}
	}

	return -1; /* not found */
}

which would make it trivial to support new values later.
