[Gnumed-devel] Waitlist sort order

It looks like the waitlist does not sort at all.

There exists Up / Down buttons to manually shift a waitlist item. On completion 
of the action, however, the item loses focus thus requiring an extra click for 
every additional move, edit etc in spite of this often being the item most 
likely to want another action (activation, another move etc)

What I would suggest ASAP is:

1) the following default waitlist sort order:

        ORDER BY
        clin.waiting_list.urgency DESC,

because it makes sense to have a sort order within zones, not across zones, and 
that urgency (if non-zero) should likely have priority over list position.

I am just not sure how to incorporate the time element


into a sort order, since it appears that new entries by default get assigned an 
incremented list position, causing the new entries to sort lower in the list. 
But maybe it is enough for the wait time to be visually available to guide (but 
not force) the list order.

2) on completing the move (up / down) and refreshing the screen

        --> re-establish focus on the item just-moved
