talking about the debian part only, how it is possible that 7.16.2 is
shipped by default on sid? the 7.16.x stuff still lies in experimental
because of the soname transition.

BTW Daniel, we arranged things in order to manage the soname transition
without too blood spreading. you now, curl/libcurl is nowdays pretty
popular and packages using it are piling up in debian. i'm just waiting
some other transitions in order to not melt down unstable.
