Thanks to Ken Brown for pointers to and help with patches.
Patches are being submitted upstream to the curl project developer.

curl supports SSL certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading, HTTP form
based upload, proxies, cookies, user+password authentication (Basic, Digest,
NTLM, Negotiate...), file transfer resume, proxy tunneling and a busload of
other useful tricks.
