I originally added order by initials 11 months ago while solving problems with books having the same description.  Here is the change 4 months ago which changed sort back to name:
> Optimized Books, especially for lookups.
> Use books directly rather than calling getBooks, which creates a copy.
> No longer use BookSet internally, but TreeSet instead.
> Lookup now uses hash maps for O(1) for initials and name. Still loops for case insensitive, but only once.
> Removed getWriteableDrivers. Deprecated unregisterDriver and getMaxLength.
> BookFilterIterator now takes an Iterable<Book> rather than a List<Book>.
> AbstractBookMetaData now sorts name before initials.
> If there are no objections I would like to raise an issue and implement the change to sort by initials.
