Feature request : sorted variables list

The new variable edit dialog in 2.0 is a big improvement, but you still can't sort the list by name (or value, though this would be less useful).

I'd like to give variables with similar functions (eg, base paths for external sites I have several links to, and templates for the several menubars on the site) similar names and get them grouped togerther in the list.

Instead, the variables are listed - forever - in the order you created them. I'd have thought the control being used here would support alphabetical listing by clicking the header, but if it does it's not turned on.

Meaning, put the variables in folders which can be alphabetized (think windows explorer . . . )

I agree. A sorted variables list would be very welcome indeed.
