I'm trying to use the Forms Web Service, and specifically the GetFormCollection operation to get the currently set forms for SharePoint lists. Sadly, GetFormCollection seems to just kick back the default DispForm, NewForm, and EditForm aspx pages rather than reflecting the current form settings for the list. This makes the GetFormCollection operation relatively useless in my eyes.

Anyone have any insights into this one?

The "answer" to this turns out to be the Lists.GetListContentTypes Method operation. With it, you can get back the customized forms per Content Type. I've added this operation into v0.4.8 of my jQuery Library for SharePoint Web Services so that I can use it in the SPScriptAudit function.
