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.
