RSS feed of search results in eBay: where did that lil' RSS button go?

 Where Did You Go?

For some reason, eBay did away with their incredibly useful search feature that published an RSS feed of results matching a given search.

However, there is still a "hack" that enables this useful feature. Ebay member jjb262 contributed this wisdom:
Execute the search, copy the URL in the address bar, then add &rss=1 at the end.
Bingo, problem solved, but this leaves me with concerns. As technologies like Google Reader and RSS buttons become less apparent, the Web has become less and less of a friendly, open, and connected place...
