I've investigated a little about sorting order, and found the following. There
are quite a few possibilities:
I was expecting something like the ordering described in RFC5051, which I know
from a Haskell-library. (here: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/rfc5051)

I've tried this, but it doesn't quite work. I get:
<<ListPages: Ausführung fehlgeschlagen [descriptor 'lower' requires a 'str'
object but received a 'unicode'] (siehe auch die Log-Datei)>>
("Ausführung fehlgeschlagen" means "execution failed")

Yes, I think it is.

To me, it looked like there is no alphabetical sorting at all, but just
sorting by the unicode codes as numbers.
