Thats right and in most cases nobody would like to manually set the  
sort_order for a database schema when reordering does the job.

However, I like to build forms eg. for a "Update$model" class by  
iterating like that:

% foreach my $field_name ($action->argument_names) {
%   next if (($action->arguments->{$field_name}->{sort_order} || 0) <  
     <% $action->form_field($field_name) %>
% }

This way, I can still see all arguments in the Administration area  
but kind of filter out fields I do not like to see in the web  
frontend by simply using negative sort_orders without manually  
constructing forms.
