Currently after import products appear in the admin screens listing with the order field set to 0.

Would it be possible to set the order field to the import file line number please.

I have a template where I am using the order field to determine the order products are displayed in and have entered the products in the import CSV file in the order I wish them to appear.

The products product_id column will be incremented automatically. So could could edit the module displaying our product to order them by product_id and you should have the same order as on the CSV.
Also, when you save a product, all the product in the same categories will be ordered automatically.Not sure though if mysql will return the products in the order of insertion but it might do the trick.
We don't do it on the import to reduce the load and enable small (or heavily restricted) servers to not fail on big imports.
