WordPress doesn't use the blog_id provided in XML-RPC methods.  In
most cases it was put there to maintain method signature compatibility
with other systems that implemented the same methods.

Understandably this can get confusing for people used to dealing with
WordPressMU because in that context blog_id does have a particular
meaning in the rest of the code base.

This is the right approach to take.  From the XML-RPC client point of
view each blog on a MU install is a really a stand alone site, each
has it's own RSD URL and XML-RPC end point.
