Just store the property on the item itself, like:

* My Tasklist

** TODO This task second
   :Sorting:  5029662198291

** TODO This task last
   :Sorting:  4362296268052

* Another tasklist

** TODO This task first
   :Sorting:  6495792999082

in theory, if you have numbers large enough, you should be able to
usually find something that's above or in-between to generate sorting
between things.

So if we wanted to move the last task to the second task, and we're on
our agenda and we see the following tasks:

sometask   Sched.4x:  TODO This task first
sometask   Sched.4x:  TODO This task second
sometask   Sched.4x:  TODO This task last

and we ask to move third up between second and first, it'll just pick a
new random number between that range, like:

random.randrange(5029662198291, 6495792999082)

so if we got 6417343542884 back, we would set that as the sorting
property for the task named "This task last" (which would then no longer
be last, it would be second! ;))
