GUI: Game Sortation: Alternative to alphabetic?

The alphabetic sortation is easy, but not very useful if you want to have games from one company altogether. It would be more useful if the user could set the game at the position he wants. But a drag-and-drop field is rather difficult to integrate. Alternative: An additional user defined number which is not shown in the GUI listview. It could rather easily be realized if the name will begin with a five-digit (or more) alphanumeric sortation number in the name. Some examples:

LA01A_Maniac Mansion (Amiga) LA01C_Maniac Mansion (C64) LAMI1_The Secret of Monkey Island LAMI2_The Secret of Monkey Island 2

The first characters (XXXXX_) will not be shown in the list. It would maybe require a conversion of the preferences file, which adds 00000_ to all old game names in the list.

Good idea, but very difficult to implement in our GUI.
