Summary0000384: send variables and properties in sorted order

Currently, xdebug does not perform any sorting of variables before it sends the information to the IDE (i.e. context_get, ...).

Because the xdebug protocol also supports paging, it makes it impractical for the IDE to perform the variable sorting (as the IDE may not have received all the variables yet).

I'd like to see xdebug perform a case-insensitive sort on the variables before sending to the IDE.

TagsNo tags attached.

No, I know Eric (from ActiveState) was working on a patch for this feature - though I don't believe it's been submitted yet. I'll ping him on the status of it.
