Enable old sorting method in the project panel

The new project panel sorting method has created some workflow problems for myself and other users. 

 

I use outline-style naming for comps ("1" is main timeline, "1.1" and "1.2" are precomps in the main timeline, "1.1.1" is a precomp within 1.1, etc). If those numbers stand alone they get sorted as expected, but as soon as I append a more descriptive name (e.g. 1_Main, 1.1_House), the ordering reverses. This doesn't seem to follow any logic I can understand, or reflect the behavior of Finder or other operating systems.

 

I'd like to voice support for "enabling the old sort method as a preference", as mentioned by Adobe employee jenkmeister in this thread. It seems that other users are struggling with this change as well:

Thanks!
