Can't this order reversal be achieved by some template tweaks ? Right 
now the appropriate loop is in grid.html, and it reads

   for build in builder.builds

Can't this be customized to something like

  for build in reverse(builder.builds)

? In fact, even the distinction between grid and tgrid should be merely 
a matter of a changed template. Ideally, users could add arbitrary new 
views, which then could be requested from an appropriate URL from which 
the template name is extracted.

At least, I believe this kind of customization was the entire idea 
behind the switch to jinja2 templates.
