I know Andreas Schuldei in the Debian project also has been working on this.
And I too dream of the day when we can enable c-ares as default resolver for

At July 11th 2008 he put a curl package in Debian Unstable with c-ares
enabled, only to backpedal it out again at July 14th due to the problems
people were having[*]. I don't think any of those problems have resulted in
bug reports back to us/c-ares though, so I can't say I know a lot more than
this. Of course c-ares has done two releases since, and there's even more
changes in CVS.

Andreas, you still around? Do you have any details/reports from this adventure
