The documentation for search_form() says the return value is 'An HTML string containing the search form' but it actually returns a form array.

It would be possible to use the d7 documentation "A Form API array for the search form."

Yes, the D7 version should be used, for consistency. Thanks for reporting.

This patch doesn't apply - badly formatted at the top with "search_old.module".

Other than that, looks good...

I hope the two extra lines Git created at the top don't mess things up. New patch attached.
