As a mitigation of HPACK threat, new implementation draft will introduce a
flag which tells HPACK encoder not to use header table for that header
field name/value pair. To implement this, I plan to add new flag field to
nghttp2_nv. This change will certainly break MAKE_NV macro in libcurl code
(and many in nghttp2 applications). Since libcurl is built against the git
version of nghttp2, I'll send a patch to fix it in libcurl. If you guys
have better idea, please let me know.

Best regards,
