I'm a hooked ecto user (http://www.kung-foo.tv/ecto/ ), and am stoked that I can still use ecto after migrating from MT to WP. Until WP's image upload capabilities approach the functionality of MT's, I want to do my image uploading via ecto rather than from the WP UI. Unfortunately WP's xmlrpc doesn't yet speak image upload -- just errors out. Ecto's developer Adriaan Tesseling suggested that I post a request here to add that functionality to the xmlrpc. I known Adriaan would be happy to work with a developer on making this happen.
