Comment(by dklon):

 Replying to [comment:13 nacin]: We're not starting 3.1 development until
 September, but you're welcome to submit a patch for consideration now. We
 cleared the 3.1 milestone a few weeks ago, that's why this is waiting in
 "Triage". If you want this to be considered, I would certainly cycle back
 in a few months. westi is one of the lead developers so he will need some
 convincing, but we're quite susceptible to well-thought arguments. As
 josephscott alluded to above, we have to decide on a roadmap and set of
 goals for XML-RPC.

 I will submit the patches that I have then for XML-RPC plugin management
 here according to the standards and see if they are acceptable. The reason
 I had made them in the first place was because there was a real-world need
 for it in an app I was working on. The biggest benefit to having
 administration functionality within XML-RPC is in allowing third-party
 applications to utilize it without having to reinvent the wheel.

 My own humble recommendation is that XML-RPC eventually have all of that
 administration functionality exposed the same as the web interface. This
 would make WP even more flexible in terms of what third-party applications
 can hook into and use.
