MediaWiki tables include the ability to have sortable columns. We've
enabled this feature on the Development/Developers wiki page, however
1) People might not use these tools to check the sort order after
adding a new entry
2) IIRC, characters with diacritics sort on character value, not based
on how a human would sort names:

Human Sort:

MediaWiki Sort:

We could solve this problem by adding a 'sort order' column like this:
Meeks, Michael
Mladek, Petr
Tryon, Robinson
Wong, Tae

Adding a new column would probably count as a "large re-ordering", but
might be our best bet to fix the ordering...
