That as a follow-up suggestion may be fine but if you go that route,
you would need to explicitly flip SSL on when you know it is going
to an SSL destination.

The way to determine SSL-ness has to be rock solid and that is much
more important than ALL vs DEFAULT.  Is prefixcmp(url, "https://";)
the right way to do so?  Do we use this codepath only for HTTPS, or
does anybody use other protocol cURL supports over SSL with this,
