Sorting by name seems like an unusual feature. Can you give some
examples of how that might be useful?

Do you have before-and-after screenshots showing how you've fit more
information into the listings?
For me, the information density of bug listings has gone way down, not
up. Every bug report in the list now takes up at least two lines
(because the project/package is shown on its own line), and sometimes
three, whereas before it took up one line and sometimes two.

The reload-less sorting is very nifty.
