curl / libcurl / WinInet Comparison

Notes About WinInet compared to libcurl

A quote from Leonard Rosenthol on the abiword development mailing list:

WinInet is fine for a "hack", but isn't usable for serious I/O - libcurl is MUCH more robust, flexible, and faster.

Thanks to David Byron and Bradford Bruce for much of this input.
