I wrote an amazon sales rank tool to quickly lookup sales ranks. I have problem displaying images. The results are also not sorted by the sort-order (sort=salesrank) I asked for in my request. The order seems undefined. There is some inconsistency in the naming of parameters, for instance the value for SearchGroup is "SalesRank" where for Sort it is all lowercase "salesrank".

Why wasn't this ECS release tagged with a different version so that applications that rely on this service don't have to worry about their apps breaking?
