I will admit right now that I know very little about how curl
bugs/feature requests are handled. This problem I mentioned in my
posting is causing this bug in Transmission:
<>. You can see comment:1 for
the possible ways to fix this in a non-hacky way, which would require
curl be changed. I am just wondering if there's a very little chance
that a multiple --interface feature will be added into curl in the near
future, and if so I can (attempt to) fix the problem in another way
independent from curl. It's not a major problem, but it would be "nice"
to have fixed. Thanks!
