I use the free-form search all the time, because the autocomplete
results often seem to be rubbish (they don't always include what I
actually want and often include a lot of extra results that are
nothing to do with what I've typed). Luckily the autocomplete also
takes a second or so to kick in, so if you type fast enough into the
box and hit return you can get the free-text search. So I'd be sad
if the freetext search disappeared...
