Get a User Profile Property for All Users

I have a feeling this isn't possible with SPServices alone but I'll ask anyway.

Using SPServices, is it possible to query the User Profile store and return all users whose property X matches some value?

Disregard. Looks like Marc confirmed this isn't possible in this post

Exactly. The service just doesn't offer such capability, which is unfortunate.

As an FYI for other annoyed developers cursing the userprofile web service, the route I'm going to take to get around this is to write a PowerShell script to run as a monthly scheduled task on the server that writes all properties that I need into a custom SP list. Not an elegant solution but whatevs.

That's glorious. So much for supporting common use cases!
