This may be one of those cases where a hidden field is optimal, allowing
you to use something like:
sort cards by field "MyCardNum"
But if you have to use custom props, walking through the cards is really
fast since everything in Rev is RAM-based. And you don't need to go to
a card to access its properties:
get the uCardNum of cd 12
