Well as i see it more clearly now i think it should be
an automatic function. In every access modification
(i.e. add, del) the list should be reordered right
afterwards automatically. The same thing should happen
with memoserv.
I dont know if services have to be re-designed but it
would be a nice feature.

Now as Chris says maybee the list could be reordered
during the save, restart or update phase.
