here are the differences between search and streaming APIs:
- for the search API, the location filtering -does- look in the user
profiles. in the streaming API, if you are using the geohose, that does
-not- look in the user profiles;
- in the search API, location filtering is a radius. in the streaming
API, location filtering is a bounding box.
