[_] wordpress custom field ordering

anyone know of a wordpress plugin (or other method) that allows you to
*reorder* custom field entries that share the same name?

i.e. i've got

promo_image = this.jpg
promo_image = that.jpg
promo_image = another.jpg
promo_image = and_so_on.jpg

but the theme is displaying them in the order the custom fields *were
entered* which isn't useful or intuitive or flexible in the future e.g.
adding another item within the list.

obviously another option would be to recode the theme/carousel so it used
promo_image1, promo_image2 but thought i'd investigate the custom field
ordering options first...
