I think it would be FANTASTIC if I could choose the order of how options are being displayed on the device without effecting the Sort_order/index value being used in the back-end. This would allow me to continue to add new options to the bottom of the list (so that I don't effect any previous data collected using my option list or have to create a brand new list to have it in the order that I want) and the order could be updated only on the front-end to be either alphabetical or the order in reverse.
I love how the Form Builder 2.0 Beta does allow me to copy a previous list, but if I constantly need to add one or 2 new options and it changes the order, then I find myself with a lot of option lists to manage!
Another scenario where this would be helpful is when I have a Yes/No list. I always want 'Yes' to be first, the Key Values to be yes and no and the Sort Order/Index value for yes to be 1 and no to be 0 so that it matches my current DB. Currently I need to change the data in my db or add additional field in my form to have this. It would be much easier to manage lists if I could check off a box in the Form Builder Option List Manager for how the list is displayed on the device: alphabetical or reverse order.
