both php_curl.dll and php_http.dll (linked with libcurl) are really slow to initialize.  on a machine where `php -n /dev/null` or `php -n -m` takes ~70ms to complete, `php -n -d extension_dir=/... -d extension=php_curl.dll /dev/null` (or php_http.dll) uses above 300ms.

seen this on multiple hosts ranging from xp sp2 to server 2003 r2 sp2.

5.2 is not affected which makes me believe it is related to the pooling functionality added in 5.3.

Test script:
run this with native PHP in the MSYS shell:

: ${PHP53:=/c/Webserver/Apache2.2/php-5.3}
: ${PHP52:=/c/Webserver/Apache2.2/php-5.2}

for p in $PHP53 $PHP52; do
  for d in '' php_curl.dll php_http.dll; do
    echo ${p##*/} using ${d:-nothing}
    time $p/php -n -d extension_dir=$p/ext/ ${d:+-d extension=}$d /dev/null

Expected result:
php_curl.dll / php_http.dll should add at max 100ms each, or at least the documentation should mention prominently the consequences of loading these libraries.  i've read pecl_http's and php_curl's documentation, and found no mention of a way to disable the time-consuming functionality.

Actual result:
php-5.3 using nothing
