Simon Fell > Its just code > metaWeblog API

I was trying to find out why NNW is much faster at populating the recent posts list than WinBlog, I see that NNW uses a metaWeblog.getRecentPosts call whereas WinBlog does blogger.getRecentPosts followed by metaWeblog.getPost for each post. I didn't even know there was a metaWeblog.getRecentPosts, why isn't this doc'd on the MetaWeblog API page ?. Are Evan and Dave having some perverse competition to see who can have the most under-specified spec spread across a bunch of random pages ??
