Transfer ordering might not necessarily be a just for having the right 
ordering on the target.
For exampe imagine that you want to transfer files over a network connection. 
One might like to have all small files transferred first, so if the 
connection breaks or you don't have any more time, etc., you have most files 
copied or you just need to resume a few.

As for representing it this would have to be looked at by the usability 
people. Maybe a bit like Amarok's track enqueing, i.e. something like right 
click a file and "Add to action queue" and have the number of its queue index 
displayed as part of its icon.

Anyway, if anyone is interested in such a feature, they should file a wish 
list item on bugs.kde.org for either Dolphin, Konqueror or both otherwise the 
respective developers won't even know such an idea exists :)
