If using only the Selected Layers in Comp (i.e., not all layers), the selected layers are moved to the top of the comp as part of the sorting process. If sorting by Layer Name, layers that have not been renamed (i.e., their names appear enclosed in brackets), the brackets will sort those layers before renamed layers.

Note: The In and Out points of negatively stretched layers are identified by their positions in comp time (i.e., their out times are treated as In points, and vice versa).
Note: It can be used as a dockable panel by placing the script in a ScriptUI Panels subfolder of the Scripts folder, and then choosing this script from the Window menu.
Originally requested by Phil Spitler. Enhancements inspired by nab ( and djuna (dwahlrab).
