Gallery sort options

A lot of user feedback from the WP.com support forums has been the missing gallery sort options. There were a bunch of them in core, in a number of forms:
— Sort the queue ascending and descending (these seemed to invert the queue)
— Order by: Menu order, title, Date/time, and Random
— Order: ascending and descending sort for the "Order by" properties
It looks like we need some of this back. These should all be "on-the-fly" sorting, as in, they sort the images in the view, then save it to the "ids" attribute of the gallery shortcode.
We should support a way to immediately sort the entire gallery by title, date/time, random, and then the ability to inverse the gallery.
