#5579: XMLRPC Authentication
 Reporter:  PhoenixRises  |       Owner:  anonymous
     Type:  defect        |      Status:  new      
 Priority:  normal        |   Milestone:  2.5      
Component:  Optimization  |     Version:           
 Severity:  normal        |    Keywords:           
 Currently, XMLRPC uses the functions login_pass_ok and user_pass_ok in
 ~/xmlrpc.php and ~/wp-includes/user.php respectively.

 Using this method causes XML-RPC to use the WordPress default login method
 but does not take into account any other method that may be used.

 This can be modified by removing the user_pass_ok function from user.php
 entirely and replacing the call in login_pass_ok with the pluggable
 wp_login (see diff file).

 I have classed this as an optimzation as it does not in any way affect the
 functionality of XML-RPC.
