Thanks but I don't need neither spdy nor http2 education. I've been on both
mailing lists and kept up with their developments since they started.

I don't see why that is relevant to us. Sure it makes that if you start
request A first then B, request B may complete before A. That's not really a
problem in the libcurl API since we have never claimed to do them in any
order. Including when "plain" HTTP pipeline is enabled and used.

Exactly as if you add two easy handles using two different connections. To a
user it won't be a difference!

I'm sorry, but I see even more challenges if we were to introduce yet another
interface and one that would be added only(?) for http2 support...
