Chinese bilingual - possible to query by pinyin?

The Chinese-English-Chinese bilingual data is now included in the API, and searching for translations/entries based on English words and Chinese characters works fine.
However, for a Chinese dictionary, it would be very important to be able to search based on pinyin as well. At the moment, this doesn't seem to work.

For example:
Searching for 花 works. But searching for "hua" or "huā" does not work.

When searching for "hua", I would expect to get ""huā", "huà", "huá", "huàbái", "huābàn", etc. When searching for "huā", I would expect to get "huā", "huābái", "huābāo", "huāchá", etc.
