Is there any way to use XML-RPC or SOAP to manage multiple Manila-based
weblogs from a single interface? I would love to have the functionality of
the iBlog tool (see ) for
non-Blogger sites.  The ideal (for me) would be a sort of floating window
that could capture any URL I'm browsing and provide access to any (and all)
weblogs I edit via a popup menu (like iBlog does through the Blogger
functionality). ManilaExpress appears to be a basic implementation of this,
but it is limited to one Manila site (and I can't seem to get it to work in
my Windows 2000 system) iBlog works with multiple sites because it
replicates the functionality of the Blogger engine--Manila does not directly
support the same single interface for multiple blogs, does it? How could you
kluge this together?
