But also, the times libcurl returns CURLM_CALL_MULTI_PERFORM calling
it again to do the next action shouldn't add up to a lot extra, so in
the end you will hardly ever notice that while loop in your app

I think that return code was perhaps a mistake to introduce, and a
future version of libcurl might just take care of that looping
internally instead to simplify the API somewhat.
