HTTP CONNECT Method support

Hi all ,
Is there any way in libcurl to perform a HTTP CONNECT operation ( as per RFC
2817 ) to go/authenticate through proxy servers and establish a tunnel with
the peer-server such that we dont have to worry about the hassles of using
GET/POST for communication ? We may instead use the formed HTTP tunnel and
do a pure TCP-level data transmission and receive ( i.e use send() and
recv() ) using the sockfd from the tunnel .

I hope I am clear on this ??

This is Urgent.
