I don't know if you understand me correctly. By saying "libcloudstorage can
be compiled without cURL" I mean that
it doesn't use cURL at all. If that's the case then the library's user
should implement an interface described in this file:


I was developing the library as my Google Summer of Core project, and I was
discussing it a lot with j-b, chouquette and feepk.
j-b said that depending on microhttpd, tinyxml2 and jsoncpp is fine, but on
cURL and crypto++ not, so I designed the IHttp and ICrypto interfaces.
I wanted to implement IHttp interface so that it uses vlc's networking
stuff as a part of vlc code, but that's the thing I wanted to do later.
