When using the datawizard to load data from a file, the available variables are listed and automatically sorted alphabetically in the listview on the left. Very often, you know inwhat order variables come in you data file, and it is a common complaint around here that variables can only be sorted alphabetically.
It would be better to allow sorting alphabetically by clicking on the column header, but NOT sort by default (I think this should be easy to implement, like _vectors->setSorting(2) or something similar). 
It is probably also useful to add a button somewhere to allow resetting the order to that in the datafile, in case the user wants to come backto the initial order, which is currently not possible.
