Back to English a tool for technical discussion. :) If I hear
you properly, what you're saying is that you'd like having a
principal sort North-to-South and a secondary sort West to
East. It's true that I hadn't considered the case of
overlapping symbols that were anchored at the exact same degree
of "northerliness". So, yeah, I agree, and it would be great
to be able to set which was the principle vs the secondary
sort, and which direction they should both sort in.
