Allowing an order in relations would not make things more complicated
for the user, only for the writers of editors ;-)

There will always be certain advanced features that are so difficult
to support in Potlatch's easy "dear user you don't have to care be
cause we do it for you" interface. Which is perfectly ok. Potlatch
doesn't *have* to support everything. But "it's difficult to build
into Potlatch" must not become a reason against a new development...
