Ticket is for transitioning the remaining functions over to the HTTP API. This does not include the dependencies on Snoopy, but it might in the future. It also does not include the SSL remote URL check, I'm not sure how to achieve that using the API (look for 200 maybe and check that URL was not redirected, maybe).
Discussion on removing Snoopy can also begin. I'll start, basically since Magpie requires it, it might be best to leave it alone. The core of WordPress now doesn't use it (I'll confirm that), so it might not make sense refactoring an external library to use a WordPress one.
