 Replying to [comment:46 dd32]:
 > I'd just like to voice an opinion that performing a HTTP request to
 "validate" each URL isn't likely to be very workable in the long run.

 Yeah, agreed.

 In 36638.9.patch:
 - Remove proxying through WordPress to test if an URL exists.
 - Fix/enhance the regex that tests if the URL is well formed.
