Custom ordering of builds

Hi,

TeamCity allows reporting a custom build number, via

##teamcity[buildNumber '<new build number>']


I guess this does not necessarily need to be set in an increasing order.
Is it possible to then have TeamCity order the builds on the Build Configuration page based on this number?

The use-case I have in mind is invoking builds from older changelists, after a build where several changelists appeared together broke a test (i.e. finding the culprit - who broke the build). In that case, the status of the page can be misleading, because the top-most build may appear green (if an "innocent" changelist is used for a build), even though the build is broken.

Is there a way to change the default or define custom ordering of builds?

Regards,
Petr
