#4329: RSD-Generated API Links broken when site != url

 A MarsEdit customer discovered a bug with his WordPress installation's RSD
 content. For WordPress installations where the wordpress directory differs
 from the blog URL direcdtory, the RSD file generated by WordPress contains
 xmlrpc.php URLs that point to the wrong place.

 The bug is in xmlrpc.php, where URLs for pointing at xmlrpc.php are
 generated, e.g.:

       <api name="Movable Type" blogID="1" preferred="true" apiLink="<?php
 bloginfo_rss('url') ?>/xmlrpc.php" />

 I believe the bloginfo_rss line should actually be looking up "wpurl"
 instead of "url".

 The funny thing is, a nearly identical bug caused the RSD link to not be
 found in this circumstance, but was fixed:


 Of course, now it finds the RSD - it's just full of useless URLs :)

 The customer noticed this on WP 2.2, but I believe it's been around
 forever. Note in the initial RSD checkin, all the "bloginfo" keys are


 The ticket linked above fixed the problem for the link TO the rsd, but not
 for the links generated by the RSD.
