It's difficult to use the same curl handle for multiple requests to the same host and port when many unknown options could have been applied to the handle after its creation.  Many of the curl_setopt options can be removed from a handle using some careful option setting, but some options cannot.  Adding a curl_easy_reset method to the PHP bindings would allow PHP developers to more easily implement connection pooling and utilize keep-alive sessions over HTTP/1.1.

curl_easy_reset has been available since version 7.12.1 (

Re-initializes all options previously set on a specified CURL handle to the default values. This puts back the handle to the same state as it was in when it was just created with curl_easy_init(3).

It does not change the following information kept in the handle: live connections, the Session ID cache, the DNS cache, the cookies and shares.

The provided patch is not valid. All the handlers of the php_curl_handlers 
structure also need to be reseted.

I was wondering if this fix was added to any active PHP 5 releases. I looked at the change log and wasn't able to find this Bug # referenced anywhere. The latest build is newer than when this bug was addressed. If it is available in 5.3.9 is there any available documentation on usage? Thanks!
