So from reading the recent comments shown on the task itself, am I to
understand this patch will not sort letters alphabetically? it only sorts

What exactly is the difference between the earlier patch versions and this
latest one?
in simple terms that is.
in other words, from a users experience of this patch what will I notice
about the way this patch sorts stuff that is different to the earlier
versions of it, what will it sort and what won't it sort.
So far I liked the earlier versions of the patch, but not sure if I like the
sound of this latest one.
