#8702: HTTP API Updates

Component:  General      |     Version:  2.7

  * Allow cURL/pecl_http/Streams to GET/POST/HEAD to site protected by
 invalid SSL cert, fopen works with invalid SSL certs without
 configuration. Fsockopen will not work with invalid SSL certs, and does
 not contain configurations to allow it to do so. Fsockopen is the last
 transport listed so hopefully an https request using an invalid SSL cert
 will be handled before fsockopen, otherwise is will just return an error.
  * Use timeout argument in cURL for the connect timeout also
  * Use true/false in place of numeric boolean values in curl_setopt
  * Add support to POST via cURL
  * Update default user-agent.  See
 http://trac.wordpress.org/changeset/10238 for format.
  * Enabling non-blocking request caused curl to make a head request due to
 curlopt_nobody being set to true.
