I've done quite a bit of work with the current XML-RPC code and a few
months ago suggested that we look into upgrading to a newer version of
the Apache code supplying us the XML-RPC functionality. At that time
Janne frowned upon making changes to something that wasn't broken and
would require significant modifications, given that Apache's code has
modified its API quite a bit over the years. I'm not sure how he feels
at this point -- certainly with 2.6.x on the way we won't be making
any nonessential changes that would potentially introduce a lot of new

I've written an "InterWikiPlugin" that implements all of the features
of the older XML-RPC interface. I wouldn't be adverse to upgrading to
the newer Apache version at such time as JSPWiki does. If you end up
doing a lot of XML-RPC work we might benefit from discussing this
further and/or sharing code.
