I have usually set up the sorting by date, but in reverse order, i.e. newest mails on top.

How could Tracker know that the reverse sorting order also means that the Next/Previous logic should be reversed? That might be convenient for Mail, but it would be pretty confusing for any other piece of software, like ShowImage. Therefore, I would just extend the scripting feature, and use that extra information within Mail to decide what to do (ie. if a reversed "MAIL:when" or "Modified time" is part of the sort order, reverse the logic of next/previous).
Good points, didn't think about the ShowImage or similar use-cases. Ciao, -Stephan
