Hi @mp5gosu,

I can ask, but I doubt that this will added, because it is ultimately something that can be "fixed" relatively easily from the user side (see end of posting for example). The only meaningful explanation I can give is that `BaseContainer.Sort`

was implemented for a very specific reason. `BaseContainer`

is not really meant to be a replacement for a sortable collection data type.

Cheers,

Ferdinand
