Yes, perhaps we should call it something else? curl_easy_optreset()?

It does not touch:
curl_hash (hostcache)
SSL Engine Info

It only resets:

Having not really used the share interface, I can't be too helpful
with what this function ought to do. Reading, the current docs, I
would say that we should maintain the share interface, because we
aren't reseting Cookies ore DNS cache...which is what they share
(beyond userdata).

Anyone else is welcome to get in on this.


P.S. Thanks for the response on inclusion time. 7.12.1 sounds great.
