Make it possible so that if an editor writes:
[[Category:Physicists|Einstein, Albert]]
then it appears Albert Einsten listed as "Einstean,
Albert" on the Category:Physicists page. Right now it
appears as "Albert Einsten under the letter E which is
confusing when reading the lists.

Example:

[[Category:Physicists|Einstein, Albert]]

generates:

E

* Einstein, Albert

on the Category:Physicists page.

    This is good and bad. Sometimes (as in
    Category:U.S._Interstate_Highway_system) it's nice to be
    able to monkey with JUST the sort order without changing the
    link. But I agree that many times it would be nice to also be
    able to override the displayed text. Maybe a second pipe, a-
    la the Image tag?
