I think it fits into the libcurl model and concept, so if anyone wants to work
on making this happen I will cooperate and help out to get it merged.

My comments about libcoap should all be seen from that angle: I want to be
convinced that when we recommend people to build libcurl with a new third
party library, that library is solid. People will view it as sort of "vouch"
from us. Not to mention that once this is offered, a bunch of merry security
minded people will have a go at it and see what problems we introduce with
it... =)

And again: we need to make sure that libcurl built without coap support is as
little affected as possible. I'm worried it will be messy.
