bug#9507: cut bug?

I'm sure this must have been spotted before, but

    cut -f2,1

produces the fields in the order 1,2 rather than 2,1. That seems wrong
to me.

Changing it would probably break a thousand scripts. But could we have
an additional option to respect the order of fields given on the command
line? It is a pain to rearrange fields with sed, though of course it can
be done.

Thanks, and keep up the good work.
