I was responding to the example given for where manual sorting was preferred, for that example, I think my response of prefixing the file names still make sense as it then also show up correctly e.g. on the link I posted to an example where this was carried out.

Your “rebuttal” failed to make me understand what your needs are. It sounds like for your case automated sorting would still be a possibility, you just don’t want the sorting to be based on file names. Similar to how ideally I want an implementation file like “foo.m” to appear before its header “foo.h” — I don’t think manual sorting is the way to solve that problem though (but I do deem it worthy of solving).
