Would it be possible to make the pick list maintain the source and target columns in alphabetical order or better to use arbitary (server side) sorting?

Looking at the simple pick list example, when the page first loads the source order is: Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Antalya, Bursa. Move Istanbul to the target list and back to the source list and the order becomes: Ankara, Izmir, Antalya, Bursa, Istanbul. That's fine for a pick list of a few items but by the time you start getting 20 or more having them ordered, and remain ordered, is important.

What I have noticed it DualListModel.getSource is only called once when the pick list is first created, that's a shame because it looks like it would be a great place to put server side sorting.

I've created an issue for this since I couldn't find one already and it's something I want:

Nevermind - I found the orignal issue: http://code.google.com/p/primefaces/iss ... ail?id=563

The part about preventing the client from changing the order is still outstanding though.

We can add an attribute to prevent reordering, I'll update the issue.
