But are we correct in assuming that curl will barf if it gets a redirect
to an ssl-enabled protocol? My testing seems to say yes:

  [in one terminal]
  $ nc -lCp 5001 <<\EOF
  HTTP/1.1 301
  Location: https://github.com/peff/git.git


  [in another, git compiled with Erik's patch]
  $ git ls-remote http://localhost:5001
  error: SSL: couldn't create a context: 
error:140A90A1:lib(20):func(169):reason(161) while accessing 
  fatal: HTTP request failed
