beadm should sort by creation date
This is something I've found annoying for some time.

Normally you want to see the boot environments arranged by creation date, so that they newest one is active and you can delete the oldest one. With the current arrangement, it can be difficult to identify the oldest one. Sorting by creation date should be the default.
