Runway: relationship sorting

I have two collections: 'Blog Posts' and 'Blog Authors.' In the Blog Posts template I'm using perch:related to relate the authors:

<perch:related suppress="true" order="7" id="authors" collection="Blog Authors" label="Authors" >
  <perch:content id="name" type="text" label="Name" required="true" title="true" /><perch:content id="slug" type="slug" for="name" />
  <perch:content id="twitter_name" type="text" label="Twitter Name" replace="@|" />
</perch:related>

This is working great, but my client needs to be able to sort the authors in order of importance (based on the contribution level of each author -- this is a research website). We're adding authors to the relationship field in the order that they should appear, but upon saving they're sorted alphabetically. How can I tell Runway the order in which the authors should appear?

Diagnostics (I'm two point releases behind, can't update at the moment)

You can't in Runway 2, but you can in Runway 3. So if it's something that you can hold on for a little while for, then that might be the solution.

Awesome, thanks!
