Just trying to please everyone. My preference would be for "-" as it's
the most logical given "+" and "=", notwithstanding the option confusion.
Apart from that, I prefer ~ to ! on the basis of minimising shell escapes.
If you are happy with using "-", I will delete the two case: statements
for ~ and !.

Is there a better way to read the list of protocols and CURLPROTO_
constants from libcurl? And the default values for the two protocol
masks? I didn't want to touch libcurl unless necessary, as I have
to admit to not being entirely sure how the ABI/API compatibility
worked.
