Yes, it's yet another episode in our popular
get-blockdev-add-ready-for-2.9 drama!

Right now, the schema for the curl block driver is seriously lacking.
This series improves things at least a bit.

To improve things seriously, we might want to structure the URL instead
of it being just a plain string, and we might want to split the cookie
string into a list of dicts or something similar. However, strictly
speaking our curl block driver is *not* an (ht|f)tps? block driver but
just a curl driver. All it does is pass some options to libcurl and then
send and receive data from it. (We really should have just named it
"curl" from the start.)

Therefore, it probably is for the best to leave these options rather
opaque and let libcurl do the interpretation.
