I'm assuming your intention is to say it's not currently possible to reorder (which it's not IIRC), but you'd like to have it possible. 😛

For clarification in future, the issue's summary could be summarized into an actionable issue such as: "unable to reorder WAD search paths". If you think of it that way, it might be a tweak to an existing functionality.

The description would then describe what the current implementation is, what is the issue with it. I personally sometimes keep proposals how to fix things to notes of the issue.

A little bit more effort to keep this tracker clean every day. 🙂

I hoped that this would be trivial, but instead it was complicated. Let the commmit speak for itself: [^]

Here's also a "minimal" PoC I prepared when I was figuring out how to do this

As far as your remarks go, Wub, I suppose we just have a different way of thinking about this. I already knew what needed to be done hence the brevity. But your remarks have merit, of course, and I'll take them into consideration in the future.

Tested. Everything works as expected, and no issues emerged after testing most combinations. Resolving.
