It would rock if there was a module to support the MetaWeblog API for manipulating objects. It's a relatively simple XML-RPC standard. It would, for example, allow me to use a nice iPhoto plugin to post photos to my site. (Just a good example.)

Django's not a weblog engine; it's a framework for building content management systems. It's going to be up to individual authors of blog packages to support any APIs.

Of course, I understand your point. However, the MetaWeblog standard isn't weblog specific. It would allow use of external editors to modify objects through Django. For example, you could easily build a desktop publishing client that would publish through Django using MetaWeblog.

I'm thinking of an automatic way to expose a given model using MetaWeblog. (I'm not sure if I should reopen this ticket to continue discussion...)
