just relating my own misadventures with a ripped CD music collection, when the 
files were labelled  track#_song-title_album_artist.mp3 and the music software 
decides to group all the files togeather in one playlist in alphabetical 
order, you tend to end up with 500 track 01.....mp3 files all in one bunch, 
followed by 500 02.....mp3 files, etc. Similarly for naively browsing  a large 
collection of .pdf files in a folder, navigation would be a PITA if they were 
labelled releasedate_correction_titleofdocument.pdf, rather than the reverse 
ordered  titleofdocument_correction_releasedate.pdf - where I assume slowest 
varrying to fastest varrying ordering of the name components.

Internal file metadata is an immense help, if its there, and when the browsing 
software understands it  :-(
