[Digikam-users] Sort Album Tree by Album date (force/hack)?

But I don't see any point in renaming the pictures: there never be a
duplicate as I don't shoot 10000 photos per album; and the shooting date is
already in the EXIF, where it can be accessed anytime, and used for
sorting/selecting whatever.
Across 10 years and 5 or 6 different cameras, I only get the same file name
3 or 4 times, at most; and this is for pictures that have been shooted at
completely different times and are not stored in the same albums.
