 Can this be reviewed?

 1- Having the http:// hardcoded makes less sense here, it doesn't look up
 to $protocols.

 2- There's no way to use this function if I want to have https:// as
 default instead.

 3- I'm also not sure about
 " any website available over HTTPS is also available over HTTP and likely
 will be for the foreseeable future."

 I would suggest then that it pops the first allowed $protocols.
