Both should work equally fine, and you can pick the one that suits you the
most. The multi interface is not yet 100% non-blocking, which threads are
likely to be. (Depends on your platform and threads of course.)

Yes it uses poll() internally, but libcurl doesn't offer any API to extract
the information to applications in a format suitable for use with poll(). This
issue is addressed in the multi_socket() suggestion for a new and improved API
for the multi interface. See the include/curl/multi.h header file for details
Don't hold your breath for that to get implemented any time soon though...
