Alphabetic sorting might be better in your opinion but I personally don't 
like it.

Alphabetic sorting is fine if you know the name of the module you are 
looking for but let's be honest most people won't.
Most likely they'll just browse for all the settings related to a certain 
category like video or such.

And yes, I agree that the category listing needs to be improved... but as 
always, the current attempt was better than nothing ;)


PS: there's always the choice of providing alternative sorting options but I 
will not be the one spending time on this ;)
