Shouldn't the ROMs xx01-xx99 be renamed to match the rest of the set?

Common logic suggests that they should be renamed to x001-x099 to maintain the proper order. As they are currently named, this is how they appear when listed in order by name.

x100 - New Super Mario Bros. (USA) (Demo)
x101 - DS Download Station Vol. 1 (Europe) (Wi-Fi Kiosk Demos)
xx01 - Metroid Prime Hunters - First Hunt (USA) (Demo)
xx02 - WarioWare - Touched! (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Kiosk Demo)
...
xx98 - Wario - Master of Disguise (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Demo)
xx99 - Action Replay DS (World) (v1.54) (Unl)

After the proposed renaming, the order would look like this.

x001 - Metroid Prime Hunters - First Hunt (USA) (Demo)
x002 - WarioWare - Touched! (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Kiosk Demo)
...
x098 - Wario - Master of Disguise (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Demo)
x099 - Action Replay DS (World) (v1.54) (Unl)
x100 - New Super Mario Bros. (USA) (Demo)
x101 - DS Download Station Vol. 1 (Europe) (Wi-Fi Kiosk Demos)

x101 is not a number. alpha sorting works different. this may be fixed in the future, but it is not the priority.

I vote yes to this future change.

Fixing dat-o-matic ordering won't fix ordering on someone's PC. Please change to x001 and so on.

good idea!
