The version that will ship with 1.1 is 1.34, 
http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/extensions/xml-rpc/src/nsXmlRpcClient.js

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr&short_desc=xml-rpc&long_desc_type=substring&long_desc=&bug_file_loc_type=allwordssubstr&bug_file_loc=&status_whiteboard_type=allwordssubstr&status_whiteboard=&keywords_type=allwords&keywords=&resolution=---&emailassigned_to1=1&emailtype1=exact&email1=&emailassigned_to2=1&emailreporter2=1&emailqa_contact2=1&emailtype2=exact&email2=&bugidtype=include&bug_id=&votes=&chfieldfrom=&chfieldto=Now&chfieldvalue=&cmdtype=doit&order=Reuse+same+sort+as+last+time&field0-0-0=noop&type0-0-0=noop&value0-0-0=
and the changelog looks like Samuel hasn't been working on that code for 
over a year.

How about someone picking up stuff on the buglist and submit patches? I 
honestly didn't look, but rewrite or fork are not the answer here. If 
you have problems with landing existing patches, mail drivers at m.o.
