Useful yes, but that feature doesn't come for free. You would need a parser
that intelligently detects which part of a string is numerical and then
apply numerical sorting to these bits, after having sorted 'by text' first.
Too much effort for just a little gain.
If you mix text and numbers like in your example, you would need another
sort/compare step for each change in the sequence. Something like v1.3.8,
v1.3.18 would be parsed into: string-number-string-number-string-number.
Complicated.
