[wp-hackers] GSoC Proposal: Sort By Column

I think it's a fairly common interface in software (thus intuitive by way of familiarity) for columns to be sorted when they're clicked.  Forget click/ double-click.  Make a single click a toggle.  Click.  Sort Ascending.  Click.  Sort Descending.

A tiptext via title attribute could say "click to sort column", but otherwise a simple up/down arrow or triangle in the column being sorted should suffice for visual cue.
