That number doesn't accumulate. If you add 1000 handles, the total wait time
is still 1ms for all of them.

In those more than three years that have passed since we shipped 7.38.0 we've
done 29 releases in which we've landed over 1700 bug fixes. And of course a
busload of improvements.

The circumstance that the world is full of old libcurl releases in use doesn't
change the fact that a several-years-old library is old!

I fully acknowledge that lots of users feel a need to still stick to the
outdated libcurl version that comes shipped with your old distro and it is
probably even done so with good reasons in most cases, but that doesn't change
time! =)
