You would have to write your own custom contents.html view for 
IOrderedContainer. The reason we do not provide one by default is that the 
requirements for an ordered folder UI vary widely from use case to use case. 
Also, you might want to have other more specific methods for sorting 
depending on your use cases. I implemented IOrderedFolder in 
schooltool.requirement, including views. So you could have a look there.
