Bug Description

keystone tenant-list command return the results ordered by name.
But "openstack project list" default ordered by id, which won't be much user friendly.

It will be nice if openstack project list result default ordered by name.. and the user can also pass as a argument also.

openstack project list --sort id

the server side does not support this, we could do client side ordering, we even have a helper function here:

the resulting command would be ``openstack project list --sort name[:desc]``

I'd prefer to not have this enabled by default since it would slow things down, it's probably not OSC sorting by ID, but probably keystone itself

That is correct keystone client was doing the Order by name...
Server is returning the result ordered by id and Openstack client is just displaying it... Where as keystone is doing a order by name at the client side...FYI (

If we have more than 100 projects it will be difficult to find out the project which we are looking for ...

I working on a fix to introduce ``openstack project list --sort `` and also default it to order by name.. If all disagree with "default order by name" then I can remove it and I can leave with the --sort options....

FYI : I will be using the helper function which is mentioned above...

Tom, sounds good. Please go ahead and toss up a patch. I'd prefer we do not sort by default for now, it'll impact performance. But we'll see what the other developers say.
