I agree.  Consider html mail clients, reversing the order of messages would be 
a one-liner client-side script, instead of a round-trip to the server.  Could 
this be added to the list module easily?

I would prefer { list-order: reversed }, although applying it to an <ol> 
element would be more consistent than applying it to a <ul> element..
