The diff page

Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.
When there are a lot of files in the diff, it is usually easier to review if some related files are clustered together. For example, two java classes that reference each other a lot should be one after the other in the diff list. Or, you might want to put all test-related files in the end, so that the code doesn't get cluttered with tests. Hence, it would be great if the review submitter can order the diff files and all the reviewers see the files in that particular order.

Taking it further, maybe it is good to group the files into categories, so that the file list doesn't appear unnecessarily big. For example, I might have source code changes in 6 files, changes in 6 corresponding test files, and each test might need 2-3 json files for input data, which will create 18 json files (This has happened). So the crux of the code change (the 6 source files) is lost between the test and test data, and the reviewer would get an impression that it is too much code, and hence the review gets delayed.
