Great idea for a plugin!
I do have one question - I'm working with wp_remote_get() in another plugin I'm developing, and have run into a few users who seem to have issue connecting via wp_remote_get(). I'm just wondering if you've experienced any issues, and if so, if you've come across any good solutions. I did notice you added a filter to the timeout param in the wp_remote_get() call - have you experienced issues related to time outs? Thanks!
