Unfortunately, I believe the new feed is in a different format, per  
I get the impression from that page that the old one is still supposed to be maintained, though,
so we could try contacting them to ask what's going on.

I believe the lists used are:

They each seem to contain 10-20 wallpapers' worth of details, no more. That being said, they're XML feeds, 
and we could create an additional one of our own by scraping their pages and RSS, then add it as a new
selection in the leftmost box in the screenshot.  The scraping part is finicky but not difficult, provided
they don't change the RSS entry format.
