`DerelictSDL2.load()` cannot load curl. It is not a generic dll 
loader. It only loads SDL and doesn't know anything about curl or 
any other library.

In order to dynamically load curl like this, you need a binding 
that supports it, i.e., a binding that declares the curl API as 
function pointers and knows how to load them from the DLL.

Also, DerelictSDL2 is no longer maintained. Please use bindbc-sdl 
for new projects:
