OK ... next question ... are the rate limit HTTP headers from the REST
API now "ported" to Search and working / documented?

   2. HTTP response headers included in all REST API responses which
count against the rate limit:

    * X-RateLimit-Limit the current limit in effect
    * X-RateLimit-Remaining the number of hits remaining before you
are rate limited
    * X-RateLimit-Reset the time the current rate limiting period ends
in epoch time.
