Sorting this list alphabetically by the first column, which is the current behavior, creates a weirdly sorted list in the user interface. I have always wondered about that sorting before I saw the configuration file and finally understood where it comes from.

Please sort this list by the second column.

Oh no. Reopening. This is a maintenance nightmare.

Please make the sorting column configurable, at least.

Here's another problem: Renaming the default "warning" seems to break the default vandalism revert key "Q". How should Huggle know that "02100_warning" is the default?

Are all the problems that come with this decision really "intentional"?
