In my opinion, we should disable the option and revert to basic ASCII
sort for this release, and make "natural" sorting a feature of the next
one. We shouldn't change the "default" sort method in a release version
until we have a more or less final algorithm, and it certainly seems
like even outside of my own objections, there's still several opinions
on how this should go.

People have got by with ASCII before, they can wait with it 3 more
months (or use current builds) until we've settled our algorithm issue.
