A fork of the library is included in this version.

You can install pandoc. This application turn html to markdown format and vice-versa. I can do more but this is what we need. If pandoc is not available then it uses a python script to turn html to text.

Proxy support is added recently to python-wordpress-xmlrcp. It reads environment variable http_proxy. If you are behind proxied network, then export in your bash. And we are good to go.
