Comment (by santosj):

 4. Well, on this, I have some experience bypassing this. Very difficult,
 depending on how crappy (paranoid) the host is, but possible. My
 suggestion would be to use the three or four methods and if they all fail,
 then tell the user to switch hosts or to wordpress.com.

 Fopen (if ini_settings allows for this. however, PHP 4 and PHP 5 has an
 extra ini setting for allowing fopen and closing
 Sockets (fsockopen) (second prefer for PHP 4)
 Streams (prefer for PHP 5 and PHP 4)
 HTTP (PHP 5.2) (if exists, and if anyone knows how to use it, then use
 this for PHP 5.2)

 Yeah, it can be nasty, but for full support, pretty much required work. As
 far as I know, at least one of these should allow for bypassing the
 allow_fopen_urls ini config. If not, then just spit out some error.
