Account tree

So if I want the sub-accounts, e.g. my 37 asset accounts, sorted by account 
name, I need to edit each one to assign it an order in the display? And if I 
later add account 'AAA', then I need to do it again to re-number each of the 
previously existing ones?

I hope that in the major effort that is currently in progress to update 
gnucash, the ability to specify the ordering of the account tree display as a 
preference item will be provided.
