CSS @import creates extra HTTP requests

  1. I'm not following why GF now uses a bunch of separate stylesheets with 6 @imports in forms.css to pull them together.

    That's 5 unnecessary HTTP requests for forms.css, which is a performance concern, especially when you consider that just about every other plugin is adding one to several CSS and JS files to the mix.

    I understand the benefits of modular stylesheets for development, but why not compile them into one file for production?
