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.
