If this use of cURL sounds rare, what would be a more common way? In
our applications we need to perform not only sequential, but mainly
parallel transfers, and we need to poll not only on curl-provided
sockets, but on other sockets too. Should we completely rely on
CURLMOPT_SOCKETFUNCTION callback to control read and write fdsets?
