Comment (by cogmios):

 Ok. then add them to the other transports to?

 Maybe my context first: how can i get the favicon of 'http://su.pr/16IDwy'

 Answer: I need the URL where it forwards to, to determine the base url

 1st possibility: put redirect to 0 and + write code to manually redirect
 and do manually all the stuff that among others curl does. Did not work in
 1/3 of the cases. This is where this ticket came in.

 So therefore my 2nd possibility: add additional to the existing
 "do_action_ref_array( 'http_api_curl', array(&$handle) ); " on extra call
 to provide the information. In that way I can grab the url and know where
 it forwards to. I think that is the purpose of that field that curl
 returns grin. Also in that way users of WordPress can write plugins to
 e.g. describe where a shortlink heads to before clicking it.
