easy, multi or share?

Just looking for some advice. I'm using libcurl in an application that
has to spider hundreds of thousands of sites, and is expected to be up
for weeks at a time.

I'm currently using the easy interface, with around 300 threads. I tried
re-using curlhandles, but didn't see any real benefit.

My question is: if you had to write such an application using libcurl,
which interface would you use?

Also, is there any benefit to re-using a connection to go to a host
different from the one in the previous connection?

Thanks for any help.
