Yep, I filed exactly that as an enhancement request:

I started working on it a while back but didn't finish it.  I got
stuck trying to figure out how to represent the sorting order in the
RB data structures.  If I get time I'd like to look at it again, but
if somebody else is feeling more motivated and has a good grasp of the
RB internals, please go for it...
