Hi,

I would like to build a multithreaded proxy using libwww.  Each thread
would handle a different connection, where true pipelined requests can be
serviced (multiple requests can be received over this connection before
any response is sent back).  Each thread would do more work than just
fetching an URL, so I don't believe that the "pseudothreads" offered by
libwww would be enough.  From what I have read, libwww can only handle
multiple open connections, multiplexed using "select" (I assume), and I'm
not really sure where the additional code that needs to be executed in
each thread would go.

Is this doable using libwww?  Thank you for you help.
