```Thanks,

This appear to solve my main question.
Not in the best ideal way, because of the two orderings.

Best regards,

The other is the "Mathematica" ordering in A080577. Ideally, you should enter your sequence twice, once with each of these. If that's two much work, just use one or the other. Be sure to document what ordering is used in each case.
