Good idea, and it's now implemented -- well, via Up and Down
buttons.  You can also select the variable to edit, with the Edit
Attributes dialog open, by clicking on its row in the main window.
Changing the variable in this way does not automatically commit
any changes to the current variable: use the "Apply" button to do
that first.

Also, responding to an older request, the column headings in the
gretl main window are now clickable and can be used to sort the
variables by ID number or name, ascending or descending.
