feature request #5346
Allow 3 ways of ordering in Taxon Navigator
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".
