Ah...  Very good.  I stand corrected.  And what's more, looking it
over it appears that using http is now the default.[1]


[1] In the /usr/share/doc/popularity-contest/FAQ.gz file:

Q) How can I prevent popularity-contest from sending reports via email?

A) This is not recommended. Reports are sent by email only when the HTTP
submission fails, which is generally caused by a temporary lack of internet
connectivity. By contrast, reports sent by email are stored in the mail server
queue until the internet connectivity is back.
