[Ardour-Dev] sort_ports_by_name patch

I was about to transform this bug-report-and-patch from Natanael to a
mantis bug (in hopes that it would receive attention and eventually a
commit). But then I found bug #1795 "Sort Connections", resolved because
"we've got a new connections manager".

Since it seems that commenting on closed bugs in mantis is not possible
(tell me otherwise) I'll ask here: does this new connections manager
refers to ardour3 ? If so, is it wise to switch for serious work
(without midi)?
