Allow to set default sort column in Identify Window

Currently the identify window shows items in the order returned by the database (postgres in my case). I would like the have an option to set it to default to sort by the value column automatically so I don't have to click it after every single identify mouse click. That's a lot of back and forth mouse movement. I have set up a virtual column to sort by and set it under Layer Properties > Display > Field.
The alternative would be to allow me to specify an ORDER BY clause. That way the default of database order would work out. I can already set the WHERE clause in the Layer Properties > General > Provider feature filter setting. I tried being clever and setting that to "true ORDER BY id" but that returned 0 items.
