It could certainly work. I don't like how the list will be populated by more
and more "dead" pointers as the application iterates over it and removes and
cleans up the easy handles, but that's not a very technical objection.

If we do that function, we probably need to provide a companion function that
frees that struct again?

Or we could allocate it and keep a reference to that data in the multi handle
itself but then repeated calls to the funtion would remove the previous data
and I am not sure applications like that kind of behavior.
