 WP_Http currently tries to open the stream handle using `w+`. When you're
 using a stream wrapper that doesn't support `w+`, this can be problematic.

 As far as I can tell, only `w` is actually needed, not `w+`. The only
 operations both the cURL and socket transports do is `fopen`, `fwrite`,
 `fclose`, which is well within the ability of `w`.
