The problem as I understand it is you can post an entry as "draft"  
status, but there's no way in reading entries back from the server to  
get the draft entries for further editing.  It's a one-way mechanism  
in the MT API.

I'm hoping this will be rectified in the APP interface to WordPress,  
but maybe it will also one day be rectified in the XMLRPC interface,  
as well?

from this behavior working better)
