For OpenWrt, the extra curl dependency would be a significant 
inconvenience. I would strongly prefer moving the AFC server 
communication outside of hostapd and into a separate utility, which 
communicates with hostapd via control socket.
That way we could easily re-implement the http/json part with other 
components that are already part of the OpenWrt base system.
