How do you sort alpha. global custom fields

Keywords in 2.0.x or custom fields in 3.x - they used to be sorted
alphabetically in 2.x. In 3.x when I add new custom fields they appear at
the bottom of the list. I could manually sort by editing their sort fields
in the DB - but is there any way to get them to sort alphabetically?
