It wouldn't help much. The existing CURLOPT_PROTOCOLS option will still need
to remain funtional exactly like it works today, and only applications that
actually wants to set a protocol bit that larger than the first 32 bits will
need to use the new option.

Since those applications will need to change their source code anyway for the
new protocol support that don't exist yet, they can just as well change to
using the new option then!
