Ignore emojis, case in alphabetized lists of bases

Clearly a low-impact issue, but a trivial fix, as well. In the relatively few places Airtable presents bases in an alphabetized list, the list should be ordered by first non-emoji character. Currently, given the officially sanctioned practice of using emojis as ‘cover images’ for base icons, any base containing an initial emoji is alphabetized — by emoji — after an alphabetized listing of all bases sans emoji. (In comparison, lists of bases that use Airtable’s built-in graphics ignore those graphics in ordering the list.)

On a related note, list alphabetization is, for some reason, case-sensitive. This results in the overall list actually comprising three sub-lists:

[Non-emoji bases, A-Z]
[Non-emoji bases, a-z]
[Emoji bases, :number sign: to :nazar amulet:, presumably]

This is an issue everywhere emojis are used, not just base names. It’s every single list. You can sort any list that uses an emoji as the first character. This needs a fix.
