By default Mathematica displays polynomials with the lowest degree
first -- e.g.,
  -1 + n
For purposes of display, I'd like to reorder the polynomial

Anyone know a convenient way to do this? I was using TraditionalForm
with great satisfaction but that option's out now because
TraditionalForm is incompatible with something else I'm using
