I could try but based on that FAQ answer it doesn't sound like 
they are interested in offering that to anyone.  It's already 
offered under a very permissive license so I don't believe 
including libcurl itself is an issue at all.  If phobos can 
include zlib, I see no reason it couldn't include libcurl.  It's 
OpenSSL that is more complicated.  If the OpenSSL situation can't 
be worked out at the very least we can include libcurl without 
SSL support.
