SPSearch vs Search

I noticed that SharePoint Foundation 2010 has the nearly-equivalent search web service at SPSearch.asmx as Standard/Enterprise users have at Search.asmx. Any plans to add SPSearch? For the moment I've just been altering my library just slightly to accommodate. I use this web service to grab all the site collections accessible to the current user (and for admin work I further filter the results for site collection admins of said site collections). Thanks!

Interesting. I hadn't ever noticed that. I'll add it as a work item for the next release.

I know it's taken me forever to do this, but I've just added the SPSearch Web Service into 2013.01ALPHA7. I'll be posting it soon and would appreciate you testying it. I've simply preceded the operations with SP: SPQuery, SPQueryEx.
