I've seen a tip several times that
ido-file-extensions-order can be used to easily order files. Setup is straightforward (code at bottom), but these filetypes are only given preference when choosing between two otherwise identical files. Is there a way to order files based on type in the minibuffer (or any way other than alphabeticaly?).
