I haven't seen one and I think the usage scenarios outlined by Gary are 
exactly what we want for an out of the box implementation.

With this latest update what is the status of getting the reorderer into 
uPortal 3? I'm going to be doing a milestone release today or tomorrow 
and then a RC as soon as possible after that. Once we do the RC we 
should be feature complete so getting a timeline on the reorderer is 
pretty important for my release date planning.

Thank you,
