Any idea why this ended up in 'Won't fix'? Seems like a pretty obvious bug.

It is limitation of 2D sprite-based engine. We want inserter hand to be drawn over machines when dropping to them and sadly that means it is drawn also over power-pole like this.

It seems like most of these issues could be fixed by sorting sprites based on their y coordinate before batching. Is there a reason why you aren't doing this / why that wouldn't work?

We already do. But as he said: the inserter should be over machines when it tries to drop into them which means it should still be on top even when the Y position would put it under and so it does this for electric poles.

It's non-solvable without having a z-layer per pixel rendered which isn't going to happen with sprite based rendering.
