Thx for the tip and I'll note it for the development and will check to see if
it could be easily done. From a short thinking about it, it looks like the general
case can be a bit complex although not really hard, but possibly there are some
special case that is really simple.

I am not sure however why you ORDER BY on more than a,b since it was the
primary key and thus should be unique so there is only one record to sort on
