Using threaded resolver by default in Debian?

Hi all,

lately I've been seriously thinking about switching to an asynchronous resolver
for the Debian libcurl packages. There's a long-lived bug report asking to
enable c-ares support (it was actually enabled a while ago, but because of the
IPv6 bug it was later disabled), but AFAICT c-ares does not support the Name
Service Switch (NSS) thingy, and there's probably no hope in adding support for
it (unless making c-ares not asynchronous anymore...).

So I've been playing with the threaded resolver and it seems to work fine, but
I was wondering if any of you has had any problem with it that I should be
aware of, considering that libcurl is one of the most installed packages in
