Created alphabetic and numerical sort tool for collection operations #4329
This PR creates a new tool in collection operations, which can sort a collection of the list type on its element identifiers. Referred to in gitter: https://gitter.im/galaxyproject/Lobby?at=5971d67b1c8697534a47166c

When they are not sorted problems ensue (i.e. I have to do that via the API creating a new collection). Also when creating new collections the standard order I sometimes find backwards (file highest in history is first).
The tool is implemented as other collection operation tools, I more or less ripped the

Hoping this is useful stuff for other people too.
