I looked around and found mt_tags and mt_keywords.  From what I saw  
it seemed like mt_keywords was the more supported of the two (and by  
that I mean I actually found docs for mt_keywords, where I didn't  
find hardly anything but a mention here and there for mt_tags).

And since someone else had already done most of the work to get  
mt_keywords going:


we went with that.

If you are interested in XML-RPC issues in WordPress we also have a  
mailing list for that:
