Off-topic, but here's an idea. Use the 'curl --libcurl foo' option to see
what setopt() calls to use in PyCurl. Like:

import sys, pycurl

c = pycurl.Curl()
c.setopt (c.URL, 'http://localhost:8080/geoserver/rest/workspaces/acme/datastores/Quercus_iltisii/external.shp')
c.setopt (c.USERPWD, 'admin:geoserver')
c.setopt (c.POSTFIELDS, 'file:/var/www/geo/shapefile/csvQshp/Quercus_iltisii.shp');
