This is another one of those "must be pluggable" or "fallback" areas. For
random ass shared hosting (hereafter known as RASH), we can't necessarily
support high performance aggregation of content.

For sites that do need high performance aggregation of content, they will
have control over their environment.

And re: curl handling authenticated feeds -- storing user + pass in the
database in cleartext as part of the feed URL is not really a great

drupal_socket_request with plugins for different things? Interesting
