And yet every proposal so far is to pick and choose which aspects of
major file browser sorting we like, and throw out the rest. If we're
going to use them to justify changes, we should strive to actually mimic
them. Having part of their functionality, and not all of it, will lead
to expected behaviour that's missing.

Meanwhile, if we just make ours simple and explicit, people won't expect
other aspects of it that are missing.
