[wp-hackers] Multiple orderby and order options in WP_Query

A raw SQL query would do this for you ... "ORDER BY author ASC, date DESC"
but I'm not sure if WP_Query supports that.  That's why I suggested ordering
in PHP over just passing a straight query.

Can anyone confirm whether or not WP_Query can handle multiple column
ordering like this?
