I would expect the main reason why this patch has lingered is the
majority of the developers who hang around trac and this list don't use
xml-rpc to post and don't have the easy ability to test the patch and
check that is it doing the correct thing.

Can you suggest a free client that we can use to test the patch that
uses this API? Or even better a number of clients we can test?
