Default Sorting features for the wishlist

Inspired by the thread about sorting of the marketplace albums...

I would also like to request some new features for the wishlist:
1) Sort by album release date
2) Sort by user-set priorities

Why these would be good features:
1) Nice to see which album to buy in the next time (>=5 years on the market... might be OOP in the month)
2) Some sort of "move up", "move down" system to prioritize the albums.

One should be able to somehow save the priorities, so sorting by album release date doesn't destroy the previous sorting.

There's a discussion on priorities here. The conclusion so far was that the notes field was adequate for this. Also, do you really want someone to know how desperately you want an album (and consequently how much he can jack up the price.)

Some of the other sorting stuff would actually be useful for all of the collection and marketplace lists. An overhaul of these is definitely in the plans, though I can't promise a timetable for it.

What about making it possible to set the priorities to "private", so it's just for myself.

No sweat!

EDIT: Thinking about it, it would be really nice to have the folder concept, that is already present for the collection, also for the wishlist. This way I could at least separate the OOP albums from the stuff that is still in print.

EDIT2: Maybe "priority" isn't the right term for what I'm looking for. It's just that I would like to move the albums around a bit, group them, etc. - I can already do this to some extend for the collection, but the wishlist isn't really flexible in that terms.
