Uh, no, sorting by ISO code is really not intuitive when the ISO code
itself is not displayed.  Sorting by ISO code but displaying country
names makes it really hard for me to choose the right country.  I live
in Great Britain (GB).  So obviously I press "G"... however, "G" leads
me to Germany, and between Germany and Great Britain, there are lots
of other names because Germany == DE.  When I press "G", I should be
close to all countries starting with "G".  I think sorting by what you
see (i.e country names) is the only sane approach.  Or adding the ISO
code before the country name, but that's kind of ugly.
