One bug (prototype in CURLOPT_PREQUOTE), and clarifications about not needing to keep strings around to all char* options (apart from POSTFIELDS). I did check the code, and all of the handlers do indeed copy strings if necessary, so the clarifications are correct.

+The passed string is copied by the library if necessary, allowing the
+application to overwrite or free it after setting this option.

I think this is too verbose, also I don't know why say "if necessary" everywhere that's just confusing.

I guess the "if necessary" can be confusing. I could make another pass over the lot and update as needed, or I can change the entire thing to something like "The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option".
