Unclear display of compilation recordings in the release page

Hi,

Recently I added compilation relationship to some recordings. I noticed that the way these relationships are shown in the release page when “display credits at bottom” is chosen is not very clear (link):

The way it’s ordered makes it difficult to understand. I think it would be better if that was ordered by the track number first, and by the order in compilation second, i.e.:

1. Bosses Hang, Part I by Godspeed You! Black Emperor (track 2)
2. Bosses Hang, Part II by Godspeed You! Black Emperor (track 2)
3. Bosses Hang, Part III by Godspeed You! Black Emperor (track 2)
1. Anthem for No State, Part I by Godspeed You! Black Emperor (track 4)
2. Anthem for No State, Part II by Godspeed You! Black Emperor (track 4)
3. Anthem for No State, Part III by Godspeed You! Black Emperor (track 4)

This example is relatively easy to understand even with the current ordering, but in other cases it can be a mess.

Is it possible to fix this?

I believe there is a ticket about that somewhere. It happens a lot and no simple answer to make sense of it. It gets especially confusing when you get one compilation of 6 parts, and another of 10 parts!
