WhatfettleSOAP Goes Down The Plughole

On one level Google deprecating their SOAP Search API is vexing because it means a lot of people will have to change their hacks. On the other hand it’s such an obvious step in the right direction; I’ve never understood why it wasn’t a simple GET of an XML document. It seems that Paul has been proved right at long last. Update: Looking at the alternative AJAX Search API, it requires hosting their Javascript inside a Web page. That’s quite limiting!
