Can the GEDMATCHES routine be revised to alphabetize first names along with last names?

It would help greatly (for me, anyway) if the GECMATCHES table (GEDCOM import) would sort by both first name and last name. The individuals with the same surname are NOT in order under the same surname. Was that an oversight?

So few existing profiles have sufficient date and place information to compare in suggested matches, I'm comparing info for ancestors and descendants, using existing profiles opened in another tab, and info in my database, opened in another window. That frequently requires scrolling up and down the GEDMATCHES table, even under the same surname, as they are not in full alphabetical order.

If such a thing is possible it would make reviewing the GEDCOMs for duplicates much easier!
