Comment (by redsweater):

 I was curious about these methods because they didn't seem familiar even
 after poking around in WordPress's XMLRPC support for many years. I
 discovered their use is limited exclusively to the "Blogger" style methods
 in class-wp-xmlrpc-server.php, specifically "blogger_newPost" and

 It seems these are relics possibly from a time before WordPress had
 formalized processing of the XMLRPC content of requests, parsing them into
 key/value structs. The methods in question here use a crude regex parsing
 to extract some key values from the submitted content.

 As a code coverage goal for functions.php, it probably makes sense to add
 tests for these methods. Longer term it seems like they shouldn't really
 be in functions.php. They make more sense as a cohesive unit with other
 Blogger API support in class-wp-xmlrpc-server.php. I am not suggesting
 Blogger API support should be removed, but probably the code should be
 colocated for easy management and eventual removal some day down the road.
