You still can't rearrange values your way.  My method converts strings to
bitfields/bitvectors and doesn't care if you decide to reorder everything
inside the bitfield. (1010 and 0101.) It'd be slower, but allow rearranging
of EQ positions MUCH easier for example.  Not that I've done anything past
the idea stage on it.
