BTW the docs say that "Use this function AFTER a performed transfer if
you want to get transfer- oriented data." and in particular for
CURLINFO_SPEED_DOWNLOAD it says "Pass a pointer to a double to receive
the average download speed that curl measured for the COMPLETE download."

so I wonder: what if from the curl_progress_callback() I need to get the
average download speed registered so far?

In fact, I'm looking for a way to get (from the curl_progress_callback)
also the elapsed time and the estimated remaining time...
