Update SimplePie to Latest Version and possibly include PHP-MF2

SimplePie Version 1.4 is now available.


It is the first release in 3 years and has a large number of bug fixes. It also is the first version that includes support for new types of feeds as described by the IndieWebCamp community.

These feeds are made up of h-feed and h-entry microformats, which allows the feed to be parsed from the html rather than a separate xml file.

SimplePie will now detect when it finds such a feed and parse them when it finds the php-mf2 parser available.

I've run into an issue with a plugin trying to read an RSS feed from a site with a Lets Encrypt (self-signed) cert. It appears this was fixed in [May 2015](https://github.com/simplepie/simplepie/pull/407) and that fix is part of SimplePie 1.4.

SimplePie 1.5 has been released. It still does not support PHP 7.0, which is what I believe WP suggests. It seems apt to deprecate or make private fetch_feed() entirely and let the plugins manage the use cases and forward-facing support role for end users.
