.htpasswd on cdev conflicting with WP cron
Since we added .htpasswd on cdev, I've noticed that Reply By Email has stopped working.
I believe this has something to do with how WordPress needs to use wp_remote_post() to ping the site and spawn cron. Since wp_remote_post() cannot access the site without authentication, I'll probably have to write a small override filter to bypass the arguments in wp_remote_post().

Boone: I had to filter 'http_request_args' and hardcoded cdev's username and password from .htpasswd so wp_remote_post() can continue to work as expected.
Let me know if you're okay with this!
