working on 7.8.2

With 7.8.1 just out the door, I figure we should have a peek at what 7.8.2
(or possibly it will be called 7.9) may offer.

This is what I have in mind, what do you think? (Up-to-date document here:

I'd like these matters addressed before the upcoming 7.8.2 release:

 o Arkadiusz Miskiewicz's IPv6 improvements (passive FTP and more)
 Status: recently discussed

 o Jeff Nappi's problems (with curl SSL -d POST operations) that only appear
   on Mandrake Linux and not Slackware
 Status: Jeff has found it to depend on the actual POST size, but is unrelated
         to curl as lynx and his java program also show the problem!

 o Oleg Bartunov's problems with libcurl timers in a multi-threaded program.
 Status: work in progress

 o apply all things for RISC OS portability (from Michael Curtis)
 Status: we have a config-riscos.h, possibly more stuff from Michael later

 o apply Linus Nielsen Feltzing's efforts to correct telnet for win32
 Status: Linus is on vacation, this'll take a little while more

 o Check return codes when -E isn't used when expected, or when used with
   wrong certificate (see bug reports)
 Status: not done

 o Georg Huettenegger's fixes: "Expect: 100-continue" when doing form posts
   and improved FormReader().
 Status: Plans and ideas have been outlined, Georg is gonna get back to us
         with his changes

 o Georg Huettenegger's new interface to replace curl_formparse()
 Status: Georg has the ball

 o libtool does wrong on FreeBSD *and* OpenBSD
 Status: libtool 1.4 bugs!

 o configure script does wrong on Darwin
 Status: libtool bug?

 o Make all time_t using code work (better) even for platforms that have it
   unsigned. Like OpenVMS has.
 Status: not done

 o Make connects non-blocking to allow better timeouts for multi-threaded
 Status: I've asked Bjorn Reese to look into this
