Description

Just noticed on a new issue submission, if there are a lot of versions (or a lot of anything in a popup) the list should be ordered such that the most common entry is at the top. In this case, the most recent versions would be appropriate.

Popup menus in general are not well sutied for large lists and become inefficeint when they exceed the bounds of the containing view.

For example, one of my pet peeves is a huge list of contries with the 'United States' at the bottom when the popup is primarily directed at US users. The most common usage should be at the top.

Likewise, are very short lists like months or days or years, in sequentially ordered lists it is far more convenient to simply enter the data in a text field than to select a popup and scroll to an entry. Popup are more suited to moderately sized lists of non-sequentail data like a list of colors or names.

/me rant off.
