The documentation output from Sphinx for my source code has the functions ordered alphabetically large caps first. I would like to have it alphabetically mixed caps in my file. How can I achieve this?

(It appears there is a Sphinx config option named autodoc_member_order that changes it for the whole project but maybe I'm missing something that was added by Sage)

Update: I tried to work around it by naming the lowercase function with initial cap, and making an alias to that but now the function docs are duplicated! Needless to say, I find the limited options in Sphinx very disappointing.

I don't think this is possible without patching Sphinx. (I think I would actually have a slight preference to set autodoc_member_order(see to "by source", in which case the ordering is what was in the source file.)
