the curl binding certainly needs some love---if anyone has the time to fix
it up and maintain it, help would be most appreciated.  There is a repo for
it over here: https://github.com/GaloisInc/curl which is the most up-to
date version I know of, but since the last commit there seems to be from 4
years ago, I'm not going to bet that there aren't any additional fixes
floating around.  (cc-ing Don, who is listed as the maintainer, but I'm not
sure if he has time to deal with curl right now)
