I've asked for additional info and it looks like my understanding of  
post_status was way off (open mouth, insert foot).

Being able to set post_status via metaWeblog.newPost will be needed.

To be clear, private posts have nothing to do with password protected  
posts.  A private post will only show up for the author of the post.   
We should be able to set a status of pending review as well, just  
need add some more logic to the permission/capability checks so that  
mw.newPost will accept a post that has publish set to true and the  
status as pending.  In that case a user with the contributor role  
would have their post adjusted so that the publish bit is changed to  
false.  That should allow their post to be saved with the correct  
publish state and post status.

I apologize for the confusion from my earlier comments.
