Comment (by brianlayman):

 Look at it this way: user_pass_ok is supposed to be pluggable. It is
 written that way in xmlrpc.php, but there's a copy of the legacy function
 abandoned in user.php. It blocks the pluggablity.

 We shouldn't have two copies of the same code and functions that are
 pluggable should function that way.  So this needs to be resolved.

 Right now the code in xmlrpc.php can never execute but it is what is meant
 to be the active pluggable function.
