but where is the relation?
the sorting wont free any space up and it may or may not help
humans in freeing space up this isnt clear ...

the only relation i see is that you will give more space if the
sorting happens but not if it does not, what am i missing?

I dont have the time nor will to do it manually and it seems ivo
also overestimated the amount he could spend on it ...

I could write a script that automates it but someone would have to
review it for security issues also it would have to run some tool
like ffmpeg or mplayer on each uploaded file to identify filetype
and codectypes, you know running any tool with user provide data is
a security issue, so id like to hear first if this is ok or not before
i or someone else spends time writing such script ...

I wish the Xiph folks would stop pretending they've got something they
do not.  Somehow I fear this will remain a wish. -- M?ns Rullg?rd
