Natural sort order
FWIW, we've had a `collate NATURAL_ORDER` in our app for years.  
Windows Explorer uses *Natural Ordering*, and many users as used  
to it, and request it of software vendors.

We support both case-sensitive and case-insensitive versions,  
but not your *Dictionary Order*, which is a mix of both. Interesting.  
I never considered that particular ordering.

PS: *naive* implementations convert to integers, and risk overflow,  
 while it's relatively easy to support arbitrarily long integers.
