I know you're talking about libcurl, which I've not used for years,
but doesn't cURL cope perfectly well with multipart forms?

Something like (not tested)...

curl -d "email=you at example.com&pass=yourpass&action=login" -c
cookies.txt http://www.openstreetmap.org/login.html

curl -b cookies.txt -F upload=example.gpx -F submit=Upload
http://www.openstreetmap.org/upload.html

would work with OSM, no?

Tom.
