 Replying to [comment:17 mensmaximus]:
 > As stated before the intention is to completely disable XML-RPC. If
 disabled, no request should be processed from IXR and there should be no
 response to the client.

 Just to chime in here: I think you should strongly consider preserving a
 boilerplate error response such as the one that is currently vended. There
 is a practical support benefit to users of clients who rely upon XML-RPC
 being enabled. If it just fails without a response people will be confused
 and pursue other troubleshooting measures when the site could have just
 informed them through an error that XML-RPC is disabled.
