Description

Current XULSortService implementation is hard-coded to only deal with trees.
Can we extend to deal with any kind of template-generated content?

The sorting code is tight fairly tightly to trees... for example, it has
intimate knowledge of the DOM layout of trees, needs the tree's column nodes to
determine what to sort on, etc.

Nisheeth is helping complete work on getting XSL in.  That might be a better
answer for Shaver, depending on what he's doing, if/when XSL lands, and the
phase of the moon.

The XULSortService can now sort any content, not just trees, so I'm changing
this from WONTFIX to FIXED.

Chris, my friend, just for you:  I've attached a simple test case which will put
all the non-container nodes in your personal toolbar into a HTML:SELECT widget
and impose a descending sort on it.
