Subject: RB Directory listing order

Hello !

I'm a long term Rockbox user, and there's a little feature that was
allways missing : the right 1-*.mp3, 01-*.mp3, 10-*.mp3 files handling
in the directory linstings. Let me show you an example, that's the way
all of my albums are named, here is 2Pac's Better Dayz album (Cd1) the
way Rocbox, and everyone else, lists it :
1. Intro.mp3
10. Fair xchange.mp3
11. Late night.mp3
12. Ghetto Star.mp3
13. Thugz Mansion (acoustic).mp3
2. Still Ballin.mp3
3. When you ride on out enemies.mp3
4. Changed Man.mp3
5. Fuck'em all.mp3
6. Never be peace.mp3
7. Mamas just a little girl.mp3
8. Street fame.mp3
9. Whatcha gonna do.mp3

Now this is the way I'd want them to appear in the list :
1. Intro.mp3
2. Still Ballin.mp3
3. When you ride on out enemies.mp3
4. Changed Man.mp3
5. Fuck'em all.mp3
6. Never be peace.mp3
7. Mamas just a little girl.mp3
8. Street fame.mp3
9. Whatcha gonna do.mp3
10. Fair xchange.mp3
11. Late night.mp3
12. Ghetto Star.mp3
13. Thugz Mansion (acoustic).mp3

This is the way Windows XP sorts the tracks too when I open the
folder, and it would be great if Rockbox could take a little time
re-ordering the files that way ;). I know I could rename the files
"01. Intro.mp3", "02. Still Ballin.mp3", ... but it's not really the
way I want them (inesthetic hack :).
Would it be possible to have Rockbox behaving that way ?

Thank you,
Fred

PS : No worries, I'm working on the new french Rockbox translation :)
