an exercise in 06-agg implies group_concat has an ordering feature #180

The last exercise in episode 06 Aggregation demonstrates a group_concat and asks if there's a way to order the concatenated items.

As far as I can tell SQLite doesn't have a way to order group_concat without doing a subquery, and the lesson doesn't teach subqueries. The MySQL version of group_concat does have an order by option; I suspect this exercise is left over from a MySQL version of the lesson.

The simplest resolution would be to remove the exercise, but ideally it can be re-written with a different challenge.
