Auto sort tags?

Is there a way to have calibre auto-sort tags (alphabetically please). When I'm editing my metadata some times I've been entering "Classic, Fiction" and some times "Fiction, Classic". Or if I go back and add another tag later. Sorting by tag then is confusing since it seems to sort on the first tag. It would be great if claibre would just auto-sort all the tags after you are done editing the field.

Thanks!

Ok, this comment is based on my attempts to import metadata, and might not apply to user-entered data...

Both a comma and a dash are considered to be tag delimiters. I'm thinking that Kovid might have used the regex word boundary (\b) function. But I'm guessing.

So "Fiction, Classic" or "Classic, Fiction" should be on the Tag List as
* Classic
* Fiction
* Fiction, Classic
* Classic, Fiction

Theoretically it makes absolutely no difference how you entered it as all of the words are present for a specific book. I'm not sure if calibre differentiates these three different references to the word "classic" or not.

It's been more than a week since I've been able to play in calibre - which is when I noticed this issue. While I was trying to determine if this was a bug or a feature, real life reared it's ugly head!

Use the Tag Editor to see (and manipulate) your tags in (sorted) list form.
You can also use the Tag Editor to Globally totally remove a un-desired tag.
