Comment (by pishmishy):

 >  1. Downtime on the update server must not slow the load time of the
 blog - i.e. at least use ajax like the dashboard does and probably run the
 check calls using the builting cron functionality.

 I don't think the built in cron functionality is a perfect answer; the
 page load that triggers the scheduled function will still be slowed with
 it. I think it's better to slow an admin's page load than a random reader.

 I've changed the code to use a single call to a REST interface with curl
 timing out after five seconds. I'll post the updated code after I've added
 a hook.
