#5148: XMLRPC interface should support custom fields

 WordPress's XMLRPC interface doesn't provide a mechanism for reading or
 writing custom fields on a post.

 I chatted with Joseph Scott and Westi a bit about this, and there is some
 debate about whether the custom fields should be included in the body of
 the post for new/edit/getRecent posts, or whether there should be a
 separate API.

 It seems like it would be tedious to have to explicitly ask for and set
 the custom fields separately from the main get/set APIs, but I would be
 happy to see support for it in one way or another. Right now there's no
 way for custom clients like MarsEdit to support this feature.
