Comment (by matt):

 I got the better styling so I'm closing out this ticket.

 For the HTTP opening issues, right now it's the same way we do it in other
 places in WP, but I'm very very open to making this smarter, though to get
 in for 2.3 it needs to happen before Tuesday.

 Basically there are 4-5 places in WP and also in Akismet that make a
 remote HTTP call, not to mention we bundle the Snoopy class. Pretty much
 everywhere we do the fopen thing I did here, but I'd be fine with
 normalizing all those one-offs into a utility function, but it'd only be
 really useful if it did the open failover stuff mentioned above. I'm sure
 it will help some, but we still need a documentation aspect because most
 of the times I've run into it it's been a firewall issue not php config.

 If you're interested in that, go ahead and open a new ticket for it. I'll
 be happy to test it in the environment I have access to.
