Deprecated functions, and the need to search by category ID and keyword

Hi all, Due to GetProductSellingPages and GetProductSearchResults being deprecated, we started taking a look at other API calls to replace them. findProducts (Product API) allowed a compound catID/keyword search, but didn't return everything we wanted. FindProducts (Shopping API) gave everything we wanted, but a catID/keyword search was actually not allowed. We could continue to use the Get... functions, but how long are these deprecated functions supposed to be available? The calls are in the API test tool, but the calls aren't in the Trading API docs pages, making using them difficult without knowing how they're supposed to behave. If someone can tell me how long these Get functions are supposed to be usable for, that would be great. I'd also like to know how developers are supposed to move away from these functions once they go away. findProducts (Product API) returns only 8 instances of "Robert DeNiro" in cat 617, but FindProducts (Shopping API) returns over 700, but FindProducts doesn't allow a compound catID/keyword search.
