I put together a small plugin that uses the common hacks that have  
been floating around to work around the bracket stripping in XML-RPC  
requests caused by libxml2/PHP problems.  The plugin is available as  
part of the plugin directory at:


and you can read about it at:


Now that this plugin is available I've closed ticket 7771 (http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/7771 
) and will be pointing people to this plugin if they are on a host  
that won't upgrade to the versions of PHP and libxml2 that fix this
