I think this is not a problem of sorting, but a problem of organization
of configuration settings. The extension author should organize its
settings semantically using "sub-categories".

So I am against ordering alphabetically by default. Because I want to
have "userPid" together with "storagePid" or something like that,
because they are semantically related. Sorting that alphabetically makes
no sense in my opinion. If you are looking for a specific setting, you
can always use the search function (of your browser or from the
TS-object browser itself).

If the extension author has many options and is lazy to group them
together semantically, he can always sort them alphabetically in their
static template, which is probably the "default" order that is displayed
in the OB.

So -1 from me.
