JQL order by sub-feature

When you create sub-features for a feature ticket, you have the ability to change the order around of the sub-features on the parent feature page. Is there anyway to translate that into an order by clause when creating a filter?

For example, I'd like to see something like this:

parent=C3C-1306 order by <subfeature_order>

I looked through all the fields and tried a couple, but nothing jumped out. Figure it's got to be in the DB somewhere, just don't know what controls that. Thanks.

Not really :(

Since ordering is always based on a field, I guess it is not possible.

Unless you use greenhopper and sub-tasks are ordered in the same order as in the issue parent, then probably you can use the Rank field to sort it (and this is possible only after starting the sprint)

Oh well, it was worth a shot. Thanks.
