Looks good Colin. I can hardly wait to integrate this into the
evaluation code. I think the name is ok, but I would make sure you are
consistent in the wording you use on your pages. I see re-order in
some places and reorder in others.

The hyphen appears to be unneeded to I would get rid of it:

On a side note, when I was searching around for JS to use, I searched
for "javascript drag and drop ordering" most of the time. I assume you
want people to find this so we should probably do a quick poll and
find out what developers are likely to google for when trying to find
something like this (and then make sure those words are on your page).
