That also sounds quite well but in any case, I believe curl_multi_timeout
should be used and a default timeout [ 5 seconds ] should only be
incorporated when this function returns -1. This would ensure
curl_multi_timeout functionality too.

it is twice as difficult to debug a program as to write it. Therefore, if
you put all of your creativity and effort into writing the program, you are
not smart enough to debug it.
