"From now on, whenever a Prime Minister with a minority (read: all of them for the forseeable future) faces a confidence vote he thinks he's going to lose, he can just pull a "Harper Manoeuver" and hit the pause button on Parliament until he has time to spin things back in his favour. "

Maybe so, but future minority PMs will also learn that turning everything into a confidence matter to try to bully the other parties can backfire huge. Hopefully from now on our leaders will be more open to building a consensus and negotiating rather than going through all this nonsense.
