#18812 new enhancement

cldr/nls i18n file content keys like in gregorian could be alphabetized

It would be easier to see what format options are available and to look for discrepancies between i18n files if the content of those files was sorted alphabetically by key name.

This could potentially be done with the least effort by finding or creating a tool to do that alphabetization process and running it on the existing files (loading each module and then outputting a sorted version).

It would also be good to add that as a step to the cldr build process here:

The biggest challenge doing that might be preserving any comments. Possibly that could be fixed up by hand for the existing files as there don't appear to be many comments and most of them (perhaps all?) seem to be boilerplate version information at the beginning and end.

Sorry, the Component classification for this ticket should be "Internationalization" and not "General", but I don't seem to be able to change that myself now that the ticket has been created.
