Since there has not been a *single* response to this thread agreeing with your request for this feature, I'm willing to take you up on your bet.

Then again, there will be no poll. (This is not a democracy.) And no one here will implement a new feature which only one person has requested and for which there is no compelling need. The priority is to make libcurl work correctly for this application using the existing interfaces; even at that, it doesn't appear anyone is currently working on that.
