Comment (by dd32):

 I am 100% for replacing our WP_HTTP library with another, be it Requests
 or another well-maintained library.

 My only requirements are:
  * 100% API compatibility for existing features
  * Properly maintained and used by others
  * Great test coverage

 All should be easy for any contender to hit..

 Some of the existing hooks can go away in the process IMHO if they don't
 make sense - `http_api_curl` for example, and `http_api_debug` to a lesser

 I expect there could be compatibility issues with some edge-case things we
 currently support - URL Blocking / Cookie handling for example, but if we
 have to include some minimal handling of those within a compat wrapper..
 I'm good with that if it reduces our overall maintenance burden.

 A note on https://github.com/rmccue/Requests-WPHTTP - That's written to
 add Requests as a transport provider to our existing WP_HTTP classes, if
 we were to adopt it, we'd instead rip out our existing stuff, and add a
 compat wrapper in it's place instead.
