I think you left out the most important detail:


AFAIK, win32 users can already use curl and libcurl.dll, what extra
functionality does this copy offer?

The mentioning you refer to on claims this is "the only
way" to make 'php_curl" work on NT4.0. Well, isn't there something wrong then
if this weird behavour is required? Can't we fix the problem instead of patch
a work-around?
