 I'd really like to be able to support featured images in ScribeFire, so
 I've added a patch that exposes featured images in the following ways:

 * It includes the ID of each media object in the return value of
 * It accepts a featured_image field as input to mw_newPost and
 mw_editPost; the value is a media object ID.
 * It returns as part of getRecentPosts a featured_image struct containing
 the ID and url values for the image.
 * It removes the featured image if featured_image is not set as part of
 the request to mw_editPost. (This might not be optimal, since the moment
 that this change goes live, any posts edited via the API will lose their
 featured images unless the clients released a pre-emptive update to
 support this API change.)

 This should be enough for clients to get/set/remove featured images; if
 you think it would be better to pass around URLs only, I can update the
 patch to reflect that.
