We chose not to implement this because:
- The order of the playlist dictates the order that the entries are played, not just the order that they are displayed. It may not be obvious to people that they have changed the play order.
- We do not want to display the playlist entries in an order that is not the play order to ensure that people always get the result they expect
- Some of the headings do not make sense to sort by (like start)
We have implemented a context menu item to sort by name and date:
Does that meet your needs?
