What happened to autogenerated jstestdriver config files?

In WS5 I notice there is no longer an option to autogenerate jstestdriver config files.

Why was that removed?

It's unusual for a product to take an automated feature like that and scuttle it without good reason.

The autogenerated files lowered the bar for getting people into writing unit tests. It was important.

Actually it was a bad idea to autogenerate JsTestDriver configuration file, because it's impossible to track down all JavaScript files that are needed to run tests in a given JavaScript file.
So automatic generation took too much time and was wrong for most projects (it only works for small projects).
Writing JsTestDriver configuration file isn't hard, but having one you can use it for CI purposes.
