Can Mac OS X 10.5’s Spotlight be configured to launch the Finder as an application?

This used to work (e.g., in 10.4 I believe). For some reason as of 10.5 it seems to treat the Finder specially and will not return it as a result when you search for "Finder".

"Go to /System/Library/CoreServices/ find Finder.app and make an alias of it that you can put inside your /Applications folder.

But it will be like clicking the Finder icon on the Dock. It will not create a new window if there is already one open."
