Trying to use the new 3.3 geocoder widget with alternative geocoder services from ArcGIS Server and unable to make it work.

As far I understood, the widget is issuing a Find REST query that only seems to be supported by the ArcGIS Online REST API : http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/arcgis-online-geocoding-rest-api/index.html#//02q000000006000000

ArcGIS for Server REST API only knows the FindAddressCandidates query : http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/rest/apiref/geocodeserver.html.

So it makes the ability to plug our own geocoder services in the widget useless ?
