Re: Reviving DistributedSearch
Zach,

Just a suggestion, maybe going the web API route and self hosting (which allows for something more RESTful and  with good bindings for JSON, XML, et al):

To make a long story short, I have reconstructed solution files, project files, tests, etc. and have migrated them all forward to use 3.0.3 trunk. It now builds and (nominally) runs. It does not pass the tests since the Soap formatter does not support generics.

However, some may be interested in playing with it as-is. I'd be happy to submit a patch against trunk, but I'm not sure of the protocol for that (e.g. send it to dev list, private email). The patch currently weighs in at 344 KB zipped/~3 MB unzipped.
