But you're all missing the point. Computers are certainly smart enough to do a natural sort (<a href="http://sourcefrog.net/projects/natsort/" title="sourcefrog.net">http://sourcefrog.net/projects/natsort/</a sourcefrog.net>). I guess it doesn't solve the "problem" of 4/5 in a filename, but it works good enough for almost all humans to understand almost all the time. It's not too hard to implement either.
