Is it possible to assign tags to posts via XMLRPC?
Actually, a better question would be if any of the standard
remote-blogging protocols have support for tags, and if WP conforms to

I haven't seen support for tagging (no matter what the remote blogging
engine) in any of the Windows or Linux desktop blogging clients;
though I'm thinking of writing a plug-in for Windows Live
