libcurl usage grows

I just wanted to share with you lot that the BOINC project[1] has switched to
using libcurl. That means some 150,000 libcurl-using clients in one go. The project (run by IBM) recently mentioned on
slashdot[2] is also based on BOINC and thus it uses libcurl too.

I also discovered the document "PHP at yahoo" [3] by Michael Radwin, that
reveals Yahoo is using libcurl (via the PHP/CURL binding). It doesn't say how
much or for what purposes though.
