- Tweaks to the original implementation to correct errors or provide easier use

To install this, replace the existing file in
lib/MT with the modified version. Be sure to have a backup copy of the original somewhere, although you can recover if necessary by downloading the original Movable Type distribution and copying the original file from there.
publishPostwill now set the post state to “PUBLISH” if it is not already. This resolves an issue I have with w.bloggar leaving new posts in “DRAFT” state. In my view, if the client calls this method to publish a post, the post should end up published, i.e. publically visible.
newPostwill now accept the trackback URLs to pick as a space separated string, in addition to an array of strings. This fixes an issue with w.bloggar.
editPostsupports modifying the author of a post. It still requires that the specified author be associated with the weblog for the post.
