GeometryService.simplify() what exactly does it do?

I want to add handling to my application to split up polygons into appropriate rings when they are self intersecting.

To do this I believe I want to perform a simplify but I want to make sure that this doesn't do anything else. The description in the API is kind of vague.

I guess the main thing I want to avoid are things like turning a shape with 10,000 points into 1,000 points (which I believe is what generalize or "maxAllowableOffset" in a query would be for).

Thanks,
