Recently I discovered in WPMU in Site Admin options, you can sort for instance Site Admin->Blogs by last activity date. That is a very handy feature, and certainly would useful for a site with hundreds of nested pages. To be able to sort that list by date, rather than just title would be useful, as it sorts by title of the parent page, and finding a 3rd level child can be difficult to say the least. The search feature is lacking but that is for another ticket. Likewise, sorting posts by category, author, etc could be useful. Since the functionality seems to already be there for sorting these type columns, and the code's been moved in already, I'd think it'd be a nominal change. I simply don't know what direction these menus are going yet to offer a working suggestion. Just wanted to get my 2¢ in before it's too late.

Since it's very easy to drill down the post/page lists by clicking the linked author/category/tag, and also to make the columns sortable with a simple hook (see example), I think we can close this ticket.

function register_sortable_column_author( $columns ) {
    $columns['author'] = 'author';
    return $columns;
add_filter( 'manage_edit-post_sortable_columns', 'register_sortable_column_author' );
