This doesn't make sense. Why do you insist on using that exact same easy
handle to do two more requests with? I mean, that's perfectly fine but then
you need to do those two request in serial and not in parallel. An easy handle
can only handle one transfer at a time, but a multi handle can handle any
amount of parallel easy handles/transfers.

That's no problem with the multi interface, you just add the new handles
whenever you think they should start.

Yes, it is even easy to do with libcurl!

I don't see how pipelining changes anything for what you're asking. Can you
