This has drawbacks, as this is likely to be called through scripts or
apps and the calling code would have to be a bit more complex as
passing the option couldn't be done independently of the transport/URL

Anyway until others complain, I prefer to leave it as an obscure
configuration called "http.curloptResolve" and meant to help server
operators as Junio says. This avoids wondering about such issues.

I am not sure it is as useful for ssh. And maybe someone will take a
look at implementing it if that's the case.

Yeah, more secure alternatives have taken over for good.
