Change order of appearance on a template

I would like to be able to select the order of appearance of fields in each template. I can now select which fields appear but I have observed my own data entry and that of my colleagues and seen that we some of us have our own system of field selection.

One example is attached with my preferecne on the right

it is my understanding that without completely changing the way these databases are put together, and affecting all kinds of other issues including backward and cross platform compatibility, this request is beyond the developers ability.  See this thread as an example of previous discussions.
