I should mention that the libwget maintainers are active and engaging
with MHD and also asked me personally what changes they would have to
make to libwget to make it suit our purposes, and that they are
generally _eager_ to make this happen. I've had first discussions with
them on what changes I primarily would need to see, and given time and
opportunity the discussion left me quite optimistic that this may
actually happen.  So I wouldn't look for a 3rd choice, but rather we
should work with libwget2 in terms of clarifying requirements (splitting
the library to make the core we'd have to link to smaller, and adding
event loop support were the two main issues I already mentioned to them)
and/or even directly working with them on this (coding, testing,
integration) is thus a good way to approach this.
