 It has never worked in previous versions reliably, WP_HTTP has 3 different
 transports which might be used depending on server configuration, The Curl
 handler has never handled non-GET/HEAD/POST requests. The other transports
 have supported it, but simply by coincidence. The now-removed HTTP
 Extension transport didn't support it either.

 This is a defect, however, not a regression.
