 On clean Ubuntu systems cURL is not installed by default, so it's an extra
 step to setup cuRL before installing Varnish.

 I'd recommend changing the installation instructions to:

   wget -O - http://repo.varnish-cache.org/debian/GPG-key.txt | apt-key add

   echo "deb http://repo.varnish-cache.org/ubuntu/ lucid varnish-3.0" >
  apt-get update

  apt-get install varnish

 This uses wget and also places the Varnish source in it's own apt file.
