I don't think that there's currently an API function for that, but if you
don't expect to be returning too many results, you can always fetch all the
posts with get_posts and order them using PHP's uasort function. I've done
this for up to a couple hundred posts; beyond a certain point, though, it
doesn't scale very well, and you're better off writing your own SQL query.
