For easier position calculation and as a handy way for the questioner, a sort by code size feature should be added which would sort out all the answers from the very least byte-ed to the most byte-ed.

    \$\begingroup\$ I don't think this is likely to happen, as I think it would affect all sites. Questions could implement something like this though. (Remember to thank @Optimizer!) \$\endgroup\$ – FryAmTheEggman Nov 28 '14 at 19:52

    \$\begingroup\$ I don't think this would work well as an actual feature of the site, because it would require a reliable way to figure out the size in the first place. If the sorting parses that from the answer, then there would certainly be a way to cheat the parser. So just using a Stack Snippet seems best. \$\endgroup\$ – Martin Ender Nov 28 '14 at 21:22

I don't think the team is going to implement this because it would only be useful here. However, there is a user script written by Ilmari Karonen. that adds a "shortest" tab to questions which sorts answers by code length. The script is a new version of this user script written by Nathan Osman, because that script didn't work anymore after some design changes on Stack Exchange.
