[EP-tech] RSS (2.0) items sort

I need to be able to export in RSS format, the results of an advanced search sorted by date.

In my attempts to do that, if I do the following steps:

1) Perform advanced search 
2) Reorder results "by year (most recent first)" 
3) Export to RSS

I get the RSS feed that I want, sorted correctly, but the URL has a "&cache=#7_digit_number#" at the end, for example "cache=2166198".
The URL without the cache parameter shows an unsorted RSS export, so it looks like the sorting is done only on the cached copy?
Does that mean that a user can't subscribe to that search result as an RSS feed (as it is only a temporary cached copy, and furthermore it will not change if additional items are added to the repository)?

I found the related question on the list from last year that I think was never answered (included below).
How do we sort an RSS export from the advanced search?

Hello there,

What are the ways to sort the RSS feed items produced by RSS2.pm through the "/cgi/search/archive/advanced/export_<archive_id>_RSS2.xml" interface in another order than "Date Deposited" ?
- in an interactive way from an end-user point of view ?
- adding parameters to the URL ??
- modifying the code ???
- in RSS2.pm or elsewhere before ????

Thanks for your answers...
