Description

We may want to have 3 options to change the ordering: natural, rank - alphabet, pure alphabet. Currently the preferences allow only 2 types of ordering, natural and non-natural. We may want to create an enumeration for this and a dropdown in the preference section to choose from.

this is split from #3771

The 3 options do now exist and work.

However, the natural ordering #3771 still doesn't work correctly. Choosing "Predecessor" adds the taxon at the higher level (as a predecessor of the parent) and does not refresh the tree correctly.

Also the Message and the button labels in the selection parent-predecessor-cancel could still be improved and made more intuitive.

Finally, it is currently not easy to put a taxon as a first child of a parent if children already exist. Maybe we want to move a taxon at first position by default if choosing "parent". Moving it to the last position can be done by moving it to the preceding taxon and choose "predecessor".

Also I wonder if we couldn't automatically refresh the navigator if the preferences is changed. The navigator does not have unpersisted data so this is not dangerous (only may take some time, but needs to be done by the user anyway).

now if the taxonnode is moved as child it is put as first child and the text is changed see r27777

Actually when creating a new child, this is added at the end, I think we should keep this as it is.

What exactly is the reason, why taxa can't be moved in between 2 other taxa? Currently you always get asked if you want to move it as a child or following sibling. Was the reason the old navigator which we do not use anymore.
If there is a possibility to allow in-between moving we should try to implement this similar to the term tree editor and others.

If it is not possible, then we should first ask where to move and then show the "Secundum reference differs" message as this message depends on the exact target location.
Alos if it is not possible to move in-between the label for "Behind" should be "Below (as sibbling)" to make semantics clearer. In a tree view "behind" is an clear term.

To move between two nodes is not possible in the navigator, I already made a lot of research to find a solution. I will change the order of the secundum and the question where to move the node. The labels are adapted as well.

Everything is done, except a translation for sibbling in terms of trees? "Geschwister" sounds not very nice, actually I have as german label:
"Wollen Sie den Taxonknoten als Kind oder hinter den Zielknoten verschieben?"
