You have to split the complete processing over several EPI queries where a

You can sort_on='position' within each query. And paste the results in some

Right, so with sufficient levels you end up with a *lot* of queries.

Why not just query for the whole lot and use one method that returns a
(path, position) tuple for a given item, and pass that to the sort
function as the key keyword? Should be a lot better performing.


If this would be a programming contest then you would cache the results and don't care about the performance for the initial calculation.
