Simplepie has force_fsockopen but the WP File Class does not respect it or have a way to respect it

Simplepie has the ability to allow a user to force the use of fsockopen. The WP File class passed to Simplepie does not respect this or have a way to respect this. I have opened a ticket #10416 which deals with allowing the ability to set a specific transport to be used. Perhaps we could use the functionality proposed in that ticket to respect force_fsockopen in simplepie. Another thought is to add the transport to use the the args list passed to the http api functions.
