GNUTLS is already in the distro courtesy of Gerrit:
However the fact is that OpenSSL is a lot more mature and stable,
especially in the context of curl support, so it's very reasonable to
stick with it. Debian has been trying to switch over to GNUTLS for
libcurl (and other libraries that need SSL/TSL) because of these
licensing reasons, but it looks like as of right now they are still with
OpenSSL, presumably because GNUTLS just isn't mature enough. So, I'll
switch back to OpenSSL and make a -2 version.
