Agreed totally.

Here's what I think the problem is though:

In order for a sort by price to truly work, it needs to load up ALL of said item into memory first, just so it can sort the price. If it only sorts that page of 100 items, it's a better function, but still far from perfect.

Here's the issue. Let's say you wanted to find the cheapest Tribble. There are now how many of them in the Exchange? That's gonna take a lot of server power, and a lot of bandwith, just to show you the cheapest Tribble (1 credit).
