Once we have HTTP/2 support and the currently disabled tests [*] fixed to
work, then I think we can remove the experimental label.

Building curl with Hyper will then still be more limited than when using the
native parser, simply becasue hyper is more limited, but that would a
necessary price - at least for the forseeable time. I'm thinking of RTSP
support, a few options that don't work and its stricter (over-strict if you
ask me) requirements for HTTP header contents etc.

[*] = the ones in tests/data/DISABLED
