Thinking a bit on the matrix for this, I'm not sure that every version of cURL and every version of PHP are feasible without making the test matrix unwieldy. I think an initial goal might be:

cURL versions with specific callouts inside requests
cURL versions where major defaults changed such as preferring http2
The latest in each major release (7.x.y, 8.x.y)
The versions that are the default for the LTS version of major linux distributions

Some further research is necessary to identify exactly how many and which versions this will be.
