That's awesome. Can't wait.
So this will allow two features then, if I understand correctly.

First, on the front end of the web site, this could be added has a interactive rearrange of the records by dragging them up and down? For example if someone wanted to compare two records and one was at the top and the other was at the bottom, they could drag that one up?

And secondly, (the solution I need the most at the moment), on the back-end within the CRUD interface, the records could be updated as having weight over the others, and then appear that way on the front end?

I was trying to figure out a column I could add to the table that would allow this manually. But I don't know how you could prevent duplicate numbers. So if there were 10 records with misc. numbers (not IDs) of 1,2,3... and you wanted number 5 at the top, you couldn't just change 5 to 1 because then you would have two number 1s. So I'm guessing this new method will update them down the line? Can't wait to find out.
