I did not want to say that a list is less efficient than sorting on  
the client side. But (again AFAIK) the list function can format the  
view's output in the order the view returns the values. So in Devon's  
case where he wants to sort the view by value instead of key, a list  
will not make any difference with respect to the sorting...

Maybe I am wrong and the list function can sort by value...???
