yep it can not handle them...
I tried to map everything inside there (even the headers) but that doesn't
help by any means because apache will not respond to PROPFIND and stuff...
Here is how I extended to script:
$info = file_get_contents('http://api.wordpress.org/core/version-check/1.1/'

$info = explode("\n", $info);
$version = $info[2];

$file = str_replace('wp-stable','',$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
as $header)
echo file_get_contents("

Anybody any ideas how to make apache just let me map everything?
I wouldn't matter to map all this cause what needs to be accessed would need
to be transfered anyway... so it wouldn't create much overhead if you run it
on localhost...
