rsync file sync by priority

Hello All -

I'm looking for a switch(es) to ensure rsync indexes the pull of files from 
remotedir, LIFO (last in first out) and then by .ext type where file basenames 
are similar.


file_a.xml ctime of 09:01:07
file_a.jar ctime of 09:01:02

get transfered before

file_b.xml ctime of 09:01:45
file_b.jar ctime of 09:01:45

and the .xml of basename $file would always be transferred first.

I'm unsure if this is in the detailed docs on the algorithm, but RTFM method was 
not working for me and I couldn't find anything in the man pages other than 
preservation of the modified times of the remote directory.

Thanks in Advance.
