The reason they conflict, is that both bundle libcurl.so.3 and
libcurl.so.4, which are in fact just symlinks to the actual library.
The best would be to release a new version of libcurl3 that does NOT have a
libcurl.so.4 symlink, ONLY the libcurl.so.3 one.
And then provide a version of libcurl4 that ONLY has libcurl.so.4, and states
that it only conflicts with the libcurl3 versions without the change above.
@Brian Murray would it be possible to provide such a solution, to allow
graceful upgrades? otherwise I'd expect a lot of similar reports when
users upgrade to Bionic, with popular applications like Spotify
depending on libcurl3, and that Debian still uses the libcurl3 in their
repositories, only their 'experimental' has switched to the libcurl4
