Description of problem:
It would be handy to be able to sort entries in logs by the values in different
fields. This is similar to the way the details view in Nautilus, Konqueror and
Internet Explorer work. By clicking on the title `Dat` I could sort by date, by
clicking on `System' I could sort by the the machines which logged the entry, by
click `component' I could sort by syslog facilities.  

Would like a sorted columnar list widget 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This is a good suggestion. However, there isn't a standard log file
format, so each log file would have to be processed based on its
format and hope the format doesn't change. For example, some files have dates,
and others don't. I'm deferring this RFE for now. Maybe in the next version
I can add sorted columns for log files that seem to have a strict format.
