This is yet another request to bundle highly useful PECL extensions into PHP core. HTTP extension offers a lot of useful features that every code will find neat and valuable, unfortunate it's on PECL which means not all of us will have access to it. Like I said before, if you are a software developer like me creating a script for client users who are mostly Shared Hosts or VPS users, they wont be able to install PECL extensions. I hope to see HTTP extension in PHP core starting from PHP 7, lemme know if anyone mind responding to this request. 

Note: In case you do not know what I am talking about, take a look at the link below for the HTTP extension package. Its currently on PECL, and we need it in PHP core:

There will be the RFC for this.

Awesome, please let it pass, and we will not have to use superglobals anymore. HTTP extension is the way of future, just like SPL.

WAIT! :) Be aware, that the RFC is about v2 API of pecl_http not v1.

Well v2 is even better, I like what I am seeing so far. And when will the RFC go to voting phase? I very hope it will pass through, although PHP internals are very unpredictable so anything can happen.
