Description _ gtzabari 2002-10-25 22:59:27 UTC
We should be able to sort the methods according to 
different schemes. My personal preferance would be:

- Sort by method name (alphabetic) and (optionally) group 
set/get methods together

   I feel this is necessary to guarantee synchronized 
method order between interfaces and classes that implement 
them. Very often the two files go out of sync and its 
difficult to find my way in the files.
