Is there a custom code solution to 'Sort Order' a multi-reference item alphabetically?

I know there is no native way to sort a multi-reference collection list and I know its on the wishlist. I don’t want to have to manually reorder these and I dont want to have to add a number custom field to the collection for order. Is there a custom code solution? Something with Jquery or JS? I would like to display the list of applications in the image in alphabetical order. Thanks to any coding wizard out there that may answer this question for me.

i have the exact same question!
