What was the reason for not including 'std.net.curl' in the Windows phobos library? I've added it and recompiled phobos for use but i just wondered why it was missing?

For others i blogged how to recompile with curl support here:

IIRC it is licencing issues, they can't include curl in the distribution without certain requirements that were deemed to awkward to implement.

No, it was a bug in AutoTester. Se discussion at pull 613:
https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos/pull/613

CURL licence permits us from including CURL _binaries_ only so one have to download it manually from "Other Downloads" section of
http://dlang.org/download.html
