File history: Sort by date by default?

The File hsitory (for version control) always sorts by the first column by default. The second column is date.

With mercurial (hg4idea), the first column is Version, and the versions are a sort of UIDs. The first number of the UID has no connection whatsoever to a date or order. And yet IntelliJ always sorts these according to the random name of these UIDs by default!

And whenever opening the history of another file, it again sorts according to the first column, and so on.

Is there any way to make it always sort by default using the Date column?

If not, are there any plans for future IDEA versions to make this sorting behaviour better?

Before using Mercurial I used CVS and there I also already would have preferred it to sort by date instead of the first column...
