Hrm. I guess I should have dig a little deeper first.
The main thing that stuck out at me was that the get_post_statuses() and
get_page_statuses() functions have hard-coded lists. I had assumed that
we used those in the admin when presenting the dropdowns to set post
status, and possibly in other places. But now that I look, the only
place we use those functions is in xmlrpc.php.
So, my bad. Much ado about nothing. I blame it on sleep deprivation.
Though, those functions might need to be refactored to support custom
post statuses if any XML-RPC clients are using them.
