[Bioperl-l] Return $hit->name by Score Bit value when parsing blast result

I did a StandAloneBlast and this resulted in a blast result object. When I
use obj->next_result and obj->next_hit methods to list the hit name
(hit->name), I found that they are not returned in an order that is similar
to a standard blast result. In a standard blast report, we are familiar with
the fact that hits are ordered by score bit values. With bioperl, how can I
list the hits by score bits? Shall I manually extract all the hits' score
bit and then do a hash sorting? Or, they are a better way to achieve it.
