Ordering function


    Is there a simple way to have MMA return an expression whose
terms are all of an certain order or less, when given an arbitrary
expression, the list of terms of the same order, and the order
desired?

Example

Given:
a^2 + a b^3 + a b c + (a^3 b^3 c + a b)/(a^2 + a b^2 c)
where {a,b} are the same order.  Retain 2nd order terms or lower.

Return:
a^2 + a b c + ab/(a^2+a b^2 c)

Thanks,
