XMLRPC: Post excerpt should only be updated if one was provided in metaWeblog.editPost

I received a bug report for the WPAndroid app that said the post excerpt would be deleted when a user edited an existing post on their blog. The app doesn't deal with the post excerpt at all so it doesn't pass anything back in the mt_excerpt field in the metaWeblog.editPost call.
I'm going to fix this by passing back the mt_excerpt from the app, but I think it would be best for the API to only update the excerpt if one was provided. I've created a patch that does this.
