I read that small thread.. I can see the problem. If you just
change libcurl2 to contain the 7.11 version the lower version number
will prevent debian sid users to get it (because it's not an 'upgrade').

What I was wondering was if it would be possible to create a
libcurl2_7.12.0-2 deb. which contains both and,
with the former being from 7.11 and the latter the actual 7.12?
I'm not too up-to-date with how this is done or if it is possible,
so please bear with me..
