      Description

      I personally hate the order of pages returned by the standard sorting routines and would rather an order that understood numeric ordering. That is, instead of having the list:

      WikiPage1
      WikiPage10
      WikiPage2

      I'd like to get the list:

      WikiPage1
      WikiPage2
      WikiPage10

      There are also many other case, especially for localisation, where being able to set the page name order would be useful.

      To achieve this, I propose adding a JSPWiki property which specifies the Comparator to be used for page names. Before I do the work and submit a patch, I'd like to know:

      • Would this be a welcome feature?
      • Is jswpwiki.pageNameComparator an appropriate property name? If not, what do you suggest?
