This can be useful to tell when support for a particular feature hasn't been
compiled into the library.

18.8 offer color-coded HTTP header output
18.7 at least N milliseconds between requests

By offering different color output on the header name and the header
contents, they could be made more readable and thus help users working on
HTTP services.
Allow curl command lines issue a lot of request against services that limit
users to no more than N requests/second or similar. Could be implemented with
an option asking that at least a certain time has elapsed since the previous
request before the next one will be performed. Example:

$ curl "https://example.com/api?input=[1-1000]" -d yadayada --after 500

See https://github.com/curl/curl/issues/3920
