[RMAN]: Back up the archivelogs in some order

Hi,

currently, the RMAN back ups the archivelogs randomly. Sometimes I would like that RMAN backs up the archivelogs from the latest to the oldest one, and sometimes to start with the oldest one. It would be great to have it either "hardcoded" within RMAN or to get an option to provide a parameter in which order to backs up the archivelogs. For example:

RMAN> BACKUP AS COMPRESSED BACKUPSET FILESPERSET 8  ARCHIVELOG ALL DELETE ALL INPUT ASC

or

RMAN> BACKUP AS COMPRESSED BACKUPSET FILESPERSET 8  ARCHIVELOG ALL DELETE ALL INPUT DESC


I know this is an edge case and not many people really need it, but I would like to have this option.
