select method to order album art in "top two pane" view

apologies if this has been mentioned prior...

but the main way i use winamp and its wonderful smartview feature, is to browse via album artist as words in a thin column on the left, while the art is in a much bigger pane to the right. underneath both are the tracks.

the problem is that while the artwork is in album artist order, WITHIN each album artist, if you have multiple albums, they are always displayed ALPHABETICALLY.

thats fine for those who want it that way, but what i would much rather have, is for each album artist to have their albums displayed and sorted by YEAR in the tag. (if two are the same year, then go alphabetical).

i have tried clicking on different columns and setting up different views, but haven't found an existing solution if one exists. so i am registering my wish here.

if this is valid, how do i get it listed in the official wishlist thread?

thx egg and all you winamp devs, you make the best software player/library manager out there imo. i use it and install it everywhere i go.
