This sounds like a good idea. My current thinking is to add a couple of
new %sort modifiers for tagnavi %format lines, as in:

* %sort = "filebrowser" - sort as configured in "sort interpret numbers"
* %sort = "numbers" - always interpret numbers
* Also support multiple sort tags, as in:
    %sort = "numbers" %sort = "inverse"

The default format for untagged files will use %sort = "filebrowser".
