[ceph-users] Should ceph build against libcurl4 for Ubuntu 18.04 and later?

The ceph.com ceph luminous packages for Ubuntu Bionic still depend on
libcurl3 (specifically ceph-common, radosgw. librgw2 all depend on
libcurl3 (>= 7.28.0)).
This means that anything that depends on libcurl4 (which is the default
libcurl in bionic) isn't co-installable with ceph. That includes the
"curl" binary itself, which we've been using in a number of our scripts
/ tests / etc. I would expect this to make ceph-test uninstallable on
...so shouldn't ceph packages for Bionic and later releases be compiled
against libcurl4 (and thus Depend upon it)? The same will apply to the
next Debian release, I expect.
The curl authors claim the API doesn't have any incompatible changes.
[the two packages libcurl3 and libcurl4 are not co-installable because
libcurl3 includes a libcurl.so.4 for historical reasons :-( ]
