Sorting an Ecto has_many relation

Today I found out that there's an option preload_order in the Ecto.Schema.has_many/3 macro that allow us to configure a sorting field and direction for a relationship. This way we can:

defmodule Post do
  use Ecto.Schema
  schema "posts" do
    has_many :comments, Comment, preload_order: [asc: :title]
