I'd like to have my module do an HTTP GET request.

I'll say the same thing as Ben, try with apache, either mod_proxy or 
ap_run_sub_request. That if you make one outgoing request per incoming 
request. If you want several outgoing requests, in parallel preferably, 
per incoming request, then go with some 3rd-party library.

I have some in-house C++ wrappers for libcurl (curl_multi_* + timeouts + 
client pools), but they are not straightforward to use, a lot of setup 
is involved, and they are not thoroughly tested.
