I need to pause to right there and put your attention to the fact that libcurl
is deprecating its pipelining support:

It is already disabled in code and won't be enabled unless you modify source
code and rebuild. The code will be ripped out completely this coming spring
unless something drastic happens.

Therefore, any features or changes suggested or asked for that concern
pipelining most likely won't be acted upon.
