Ordering and reordering tabs: when?!?

So the tab groups is kind of cool, but a feature I've been waiting for a
LONG time that seems to be MUCH simpler still is listed as open:

Tracker Request # 2894: Editor Tab Placement, Alignment, and Sorting

Type: Feature Planned for Version: ]]>
Priority: Low State: Open
Build: 642


http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=2894

This has been around since August 27 of 2002 with 58 votes!

It's still open. There have been a fair number of duplicates and there are
a fair number of votes for this.

And there's also:

http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=2618

Which is similar and has 23 votes and was filed on August 22 of 2002.

Please, please can someone tell me why this hasn't been implemented yet??
Just an alphabetical sort on the tabs would be nice and it's sooo easy (I've
done it for my own tabbed panes).

On March 3rd 2003, Vladimir Kondratyev said that this feature would be
implemented (see
http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=3563). Here it is
over 6 months later and it hasn't been implemented. :(

Guillaume Laforge reminded me about this one, which deals with the same
issue:

My favourite feature is drag'n drop editor tab reordering.
I'm longing to see this eventually in Aurora.
