[R-sig-Debian] FYI libcurl conflicts in ubuntu 18.04

One of the curl maintainers has pointed me to this bug report on
Launchpad that may affect r-base users:

The issue is that ubuntu now ships both libcurl3 (gnutls, nss) as well
as libcurl4 (openssl) which cannot be installed concurrently. Because
r-base-core depends on libcurl4, it will conflict with any other
packages depending on libcurl3.
