Had a feeling that would be the response. How long will the current
polling search API be alive (and supported)?

The demultiplexing of the status messages prevents a simple migration
path - as a matter of fact it requires a completely new architecture
for our collection from Twitter. As (or more) importantly it will
likely force changes that will impact downstream ETL/metadata
generation processes.

I do, however, understand the need (in terms of efficiency) to keep
concurrent connections optimized.

Can one be relatively assured that future iterations of the Search API
will have some degree of backwards compatibility?
