But that would be in line with the agreement that "000file" and "00file"
are equal with respect to natural sort. In that case "usual" sort
(strcmp or strcasecmp?) is used as the arbiter which would then treat
"000file" as "less."

I'm not stating anything about the consensus, I just want to say that
"000file < 00file" does not contradict to what kugel said (or wrote).
