Of course; you have to play a little with "touch", "mv" and "rm". If you want
to know of a leafnode-specific way - there is none yet.

For example, you can copy ".../interesting.groups" to somewhere else (to
have a backup), then remove all entries ("rm .../interesting.groups/*")
and create them anew in the order that you want to have (with "touch").
