Yes,

Pass to the CFLAGS upon configuration a smaller size of buffer, something like
 -DCURL_MAX_WRITE_SIZE=4096

See e.g. as it does curl-loader here:
http://curl-loader.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/curl-loader/trunk/curl-loader/Makefile?view=markup

1000 users is not an issues.
Some users are already using curl-loader with 100K handles,
separated to 8 multi-handles, each in its own thread.

Take care!
