 Hey @johnbillion,

 I've started working on this issue and would love to get some preliminary
 feedback before digging in further. The current patch removes the API
 lookup from admin_init, but doesn't touch the plugin screens yet. I opted
 not to use the non-blocking method, because it seemed cleaner to fire off
 the request via AJAX and use the response directly to update the UI
 opposed to polling the server. Does this approach seem reasonable? Your
 thoughts would be appreciated.
