Whither Google Auctions?

After the bomb dropped on eBay sellers today (Lower Insertion Fees! Free Gallery! Oh, and much higher Final Value Fees! By the way, you can't leave negative feedback for buyers anymore. And PayPal may be holding your money until you received positive feedback, or 21 days. Sheesh.) me and hundreds of other sellers are looking for a way out.
In the past few years there's been talk of Google starting an auction site of its own. Anyone know the latest on that project's status?
And if not Google, where do we go from here? I've come to expect the worst from eBay, but this is beyond.
(My personal business is small but provides a nice buffer. I'm not really looking into expanding much, so my own website, buying advertising, etc. doesn't seem right for me. I'm looking more for established or growing marketplaces with decent traffic. Advice for those looking to build their own webstore will not be refused though.)
