 It would be cool if we could make multiple requests via HTTP in parallel
 rather than having each request stack up and block.

 Some references to how some others are doing it:
 http://pecl.php.net/package/pecl_http Of course that is in C. :)

 also: http://www.php.net/manual/en/class.httprequestpool.php

 The basic premise is, use a request pool. How we would implement such a
 thing in WordPress, I am not sure at the moment.

 If we could do this then things that need to make external requests
 wouldn't need to block page/asset requests. Sites would speed up and
 unicorns would appear.
