From your page: "I built these binaries with the threaded resolver for
asynchronous domain name lookups. This doesn't do much if you only use
curl_easy handles, but it speeds up curl_multi handles somewhat if your app
uses them to transfer several things at once."

Wouldn't it speed up all handles now that curl is 100% curl_multi
internally? Or would that still be true if I only use the curl_easy API?
(bearing in mind that most routes to curl start from a background thread by
way of NSObject's performSelectorInBackground: method...
