The knee-jerk answer: Because that's the way it's done on other
clients, and as such, behaviours between clients match? :)
I don't feel there's a good reason to sort in-client unless all the
clients do so; there's no point in behaving differently, as it breaks
compatibility with any perl-based commandline tools one might write
to access the same data.
If someone wants to sort, they can sort on the way in, IMO.
