serve as a guideline for others for information, feedback and possible
participation.

HSTS
----

Complete and merge [the existing PR](https://github.com/curl/curl/pull/2682).

Loading a huge preload file is probably not too interesting to most people,
but using a custom file and reacting to HSTS response header probably are
good features.

DNS-over-TLS
------------

Similar to DNS-over-HTTPS. Could share quite a lot of generic code.

ESNI (Encrypted SNI)
--------------------

See Daniel's post on [Support of Encrypted
SNI](https://curl.haxx.se/mail/lib-2019-03/0000.html) on the mailing list.

HSTS
----
Initial work exists in https://github.com/curl/curl/pull/4011

Complete and merge [the existing PR](https://github.com/curl/curl/pull/2682).
tiny-curl
---------

Option to let CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST be overridden on redirect
-------------------------------------------------------------
There's no immediate action for this but users seem keen on being able to
building custom minimized versions of libcurl for their products. Make sure
new features that are "niche" can still be disabled at build-time.

(This is a common problem for people using `-X` and `-L` together.)
MQTT
----

Possibly as a new bit to `CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION` ?
Support receiving and sending MQTT messages. Initial work exists in
https://github.com/curl/curl/pull/3514

Hardcode “localhost”
--------------------

No need to resolve it. Avoid a risk where this is resolved over the network
and actually responds with something else than a local address. Some operating
systems already do this. Also:
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-dnsop-let-localhost-be-localhost-02

Consider "menu config"-style build feature selection
----------------------------------------------------
"menu config"-style build feature selection
-------------------------------------------

Allow easier building of custom libcurl versions with only a selected feature
where the available features are easily browsable and toggle-able ON/OFF or
similar.
