Is it possible to sort sub-accounts in hledger reports?

It seems like from the hledger manual if you declare your account directives in a specified order that will affect how they are sorted in report output. However it doesn't seem to take effect for me in the child/sub-accounts. For example if I declare:

Assets:Account2 Assets:Account1 

Account 1 still comes out on top.

Can anyone confirm if I can do what I'm trying to do here?

Sorting is done at each level of the account tree, within each group of sibling accounts under the same parent. And currently, this directive:

account other:zoo

would influence the position of zoo among other's subaccounts, but not the position of other among the top-level accounts.
