Librart is simply a view to results of your query, not editor. Think
about Midnight Commander -- it simply lists data which is there (in this
case, file names), sorted by specific criterion. It doesn't allow you to
change the order of files in directory, as this is meaningless to
filesystem, to which MC is only a window. Now, if you want files
processed in certain order, you pass them in that order to whoever needs
them, be it by order of CLI arguments, or creating playlist of sort in
app. This is analogous to library -- manual arranging there doesn't bear
any meaning for something that only presents results of query

As Christophe said, that calls for playqueue -- which personally I'd
love to see
