Adding a new patch that consolidates most sorting into a single class, adds settings to control the action of this new class, and extends sorting to directory names.

New patch that extends the database schemas to include "sorttitle", "sortsubtitle" and "sortfilname" columns (as per a comment in IRC). These are populated when initially created on the schema upgrade, which can take a little while on a large db. All future object creation will ensure that the sortable title, subtitle and filename fields are populated and written to the database.
