Preserving tree order of template children

Hi,

I have a template that represents a complex list of tasks that must be done in a certain order. Each task on the list is a child of the template. I manually order the tasks (children) in the template, e.g.:

Task list (template)
|- Underwear is the first thing I put on
|- Pants are the second thing I put on
|- Shoes are the third thing I put on

However, when I create a new instance of the item from the template, the tree order is not preserved. Instead, sort order defaults to alphabetical, e.g.:

Task list (item created from template)
|- Pants are the second thing I put on
|- Shoes are the third thing I put on
|- Underwear is the first thing I put on

Just wondering if there was any way to keep the template's tree order preserved in the item created from it, rather than revert to alphabetical. I could number the items, but there are actually many children and it's very convenient to re-order them on the fly in the template, as the list gets refined.

As always, thanks!
Aaron
