MSN Search Shows 1000 Results But MSN's API Still Shows 250?

Tuesday we reported that MSN Now Goes Beyond 250 Results from their previous state of only showing 250 results per search query. But I just read that thread and noticed an update, stating that although the web search front end gives over 1,000 results, the API only gives 250 still.

In my opinion, it is more useful to display the 1,000 results within the API, as opposed to in the web results that are displayed to the end user. Most people do not like to click beyond the 3rd page, the whole reasoning behind MSN only showing the first 250 results in the first place. So they opened it up to show more on the front end but not on the API....

I'll assume that this is a sign that the API is soon to follow. And let me note that I did not verify that the API is limiting you to 250 results, I am basing this on that forum post.
