[PATCH] curl.h: name space pollution by "enum type"

Hi all,

We got this bug report ( about a name
space pollution we have in the curl/curl.h public header. It was added by me
in 47c392e135f17 (Jul 22 2009).

The fix that removes the pollution then also changes the name of an enum we
provide. I suspect *very* few programs actually use the enum by name so it
should be very rare that this breaks anything but still...

Any alternative suggestions?

NOTE: my fix is slightly different than the one in the pull request.
