The LGPL would be an option.

Not for curl though and probably not to other BSD/MIT licensed projects...

That's a good point.

No. By licensing something under GPL you don't assign any copyright to FSF.*

However, in some GNU projects, -and unlike most (all?) the rest of free projects- the FSF additionally requests to be assigned the copyright of the work, in order to be
in a better position for enforcing its free license.

* Actually, if it's licensed with an "or later version", as the license gatekeepers,
they have an extra right to change it, but I wouldn't.

(Sorry, I don't know. I'm not a lawyer, so my solution is usually to
avoid GPL code all together).
That's a solution. Although it's a sad result from usage of a license intended to preserve freedoms.
