Hi all,

what a great help list!  I hope someone can help me with this puzzle...

I'm trying to find a simple way to do:


so that the factors are ordered left-to-right along the x-axis by
median, not alphabetically by factor name.

Complicated ways abound, but I'm hoping for a magical one-liner that'll
do the trick.

Any suggestions would be treasured.
